Sir John Denham

(1615 - 1669 / Ireland)

Poems of Sir John Denham

1. Cooper's Hill (excerpts) 1/1/2004

Cooper's Hill (excerpts)

...
My eye, descending from the hill, surveys
Where Thames amongst the wanton valleys strays;
Thames, the most lov'd of all the Ocean's sons
By his old sire, to his embraces runs,
Hasting to pay his tribute to the sea,
Like mortal life to meet eternity.
Though with those streams he no resemblance hold
Whose foam is amber, and their gravel gold,

[Hata Bildir]
