Into My Heart An Air That Kills Poem by Alfred Edward Housman

Into My Heart An Air That Kills

Rating: 2.6


Into my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?

That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went
And cannot come again.

One of the greatest poems of longing by a wonderful master of melancholy

My favourite poem. Some may find it maudlin and sentimental but I find it evocative of lost childhood. Happiness in simple things and realisation that life is transitory.
