Lonely Crowd


There is a populace,
Which watches and laughs,
Which soothes and mocks the wounds,
That it inflicted,
And then scorns, and scoffs
And the moistened eyes
Gazes at those million eyes
To seize a glimpse of sympathy,
A touch of affability,
A cozy corner,
And then a sudden stroke,
Tears apart the tears from the eyes,
A stroke of realization
A pricking truth-
I stand in a foreign land
Lonely and desolate,
With many alike me
All jostling alone,
Through a lonely crowd!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
