Gamaliel Bradford

(9 October 1863 - 11 April 1932 / Boston, Massachusetts)

A Thousand Years


Just to utter a word,
That is all I desire;
That may still be heard,
When I expire;
That still may glow,
Like a soft, sweet flame,
When others go,
As they lightly came;
That may still be sung
With hopes and fears,
By a careless tongue
In a thousand years.

Poem of the Day

Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
