Does anyone know the poem by James Stephens 'O Ghost, that has gone away'? I need to check a text.
In the forth line of the poem Check I believe the word should be stole not sole. I had to memorise this at school back in the early 60's and the word was stole.
Where is the brilliant James Stephens poem 'The Shell'? It should be here. The simple act of putting a shell to the ear caused him to produce a truly wonderful poem.
I am the maker,The builder, the breaker,The eagle-winged helper,The speedy forsaker!The lance and the lyre,The water, the fire,The tooth of oppression,The lip of desire!
