O! let these engagements be for a while so,
Ere my love of unattended presence, more sweet,
Than summer's eve can afford to thy solemn mien;
This world half so dumb, drear and deaf to the ear,
That e'ery skipped beat too volatile in a strained note,
Oft goes unchecked by what I bring to the page:
The fedora of your dream lies dead in ruffled feathers,
Never say that verses chide, my mind, through lost threads of thought
Of eyes so blind, such darkling insights bewail the night;
Much too rendered in some age-old grey this empty sky,
Needest no woeful song from out of the blues of still waters,
Nor the boat that rows well with oars half-sunk by the sea ashore.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
