    The Stolen Child

    Where dips the rocky highland
    Of Sleuth Wood in the lake,
    There lies a leafy island
    Where flapping herons wake
    The drowsy water rats;
    There we've hid our faery vats,
    Full of berrys
    And of reddest stolen cherries.
    Come away, O human child!
    To the waters and the wild
    With a faery, hand in hand,
    For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

    Where the wave of moonlight glosses
    The dim gray sands with light,
    Far off by furthest Rosses
    We foot it all the night,
    Weaving olden dances
    Mingling hands and mingling glances
    Till the moon has taken flight;
    To and fro we leap
    And chase the frothy bubbles,
    While the world is full of troubles
    And anxious in its sleep.
    Come away, O human child!
    To the waters and the wild
    With a faery, hand in hand,
    For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

    Where the wandering water gushes
    From the hills above Glen-Car,
    In pools among the rushes
    That scarce could bathe a star,
    We seek for slumbering trout
    And whispering in their ears
    Give them unquiet dreams;
    Leaning softly out
    From ferns that dropp their tears
    Over the young streams.
    Come away, O human child!
    To the waters and the wild
    With a faery, hand in hand,
    For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

    Away with us he's going,
    The solemn-eyed:
    He'll hear no more the lowing
    Of the calves on the warm hillside
    Or the kettle on the hob
    Sing peace into his breast,
    Or see the brown mice bob
    Round and round the oatmeal chest.
    For he comes, the human child,
    To the waters and the wild
    With a faery, hand in hand,
    For the world's more full of weeping than he can understand. read more »

    Night Letter (excerpt)

    Violence shakes my dreams; I am so cold,
    Chilled by the persecuting wind abroad,
    The oratory of the rodent's tooth,
    The slaughter of the blue-eyed open towns, read more »

    Ozymandias

    I met a traveller from an antique land
    Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
    Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, read more »

    Memorial Day For The War Dead

    Memorial day for the war dead. Add now
    the grief of all your losses to their grief,
    even of a woman that has left you. Mix
    sorrow with sorrow, like time-saving history, read more »

    In Louisiana

    The long, gray moss that softly swings
    In solemn grandeur from the trees,
    Like mournful funeral draperies,—
    A brown-winged bird that never sings. read more »

    Day of Grief

    I was forcing a wasp to the top of a window
    where there was some sky and there were tiger lilies
    outside just to love him or maybe only
    simply a kiss for he was hurrying home read more »

    Surprised by Joy

    Surprised by joy — impatient as the Wind
    I turned to share the transport--Oh! with whom

    The Words Under the Words

    My grandmother’s hands recognize grapes,
    the damp shine of a goat’s new skin.
    When I was sick they followed me,
    I woke from the long fever to find them read more »
