Poems of Matthew Arnold

61. Youth and Calm 5/6/2001
62. Youth's Agitations 4/2/2010


A region desolate and wild.
Black, chafing water: and afloat,
And lonely as a truant child
In a waste wood, a single boat:
No mast, no sails are set thereon;
It moves, but never moveth on:
And welters like a human thing
Amid the wild waves weltering.

[Hata Bildir]
