Ten Times Ten Doth Search Her Ten Times Ten Times (Terzenelle)


Ten thousand fell in front of me
Ten thousand princes in the ball;
Ten thousand tiny thoughts of she

Tiptoed across that gallant hall
But there they met with great surprise
Ten thousand princes in the ball

And she was jewel in their eyes:
Each man with mistletoe in reach,
But there they met with great surprise

Men richer in the art of speech
That woo immortal life to die -
Each man with mistletoe in reach.

Compared I am a flytrap fly
But she chose me and gave a smile
That woo immortal life to die.

I went to drown in river Nile,
But she chose me and gave a smile;
Ten thousand fell in front of me
Ten thousand tiny thoughts of she.

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.
