Change Upon Change - Poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Five months ago the stream did flow,
The lilies bloomed within the sedge,
And we were lingering to and fro,
Where none will track thee in this snow,
Along the stream, beside the hedge.
Ah, Sweet, be free to love and go!
For if I do not hear thy foot,
The frozen river is as mute,
The flowers have dried down to the root:
And why, since these be changed since May,
Shouldst thou change less than they.

And slow, slow as the winter snow
The tears have drifted to mine eyes;
And my poor cheeks, five months ago
Set blushing at thy praises so,
Put paleness on for a disguise.
Ah, Sweet, be free to praise and go!
For if my face is turned too pale,
It was thine oath that first did fail, --
It was thy love proved false and frail, --
And why, since these be changed enow,
Should I change less than thou.

Change Poems

  1. Change

    Change Said the sun to the moon, You cannot stay. Change Says the moon to the waters, All is flowing. Change Says the fields to the grass, Seed-time and harvest, Chaff and grain. You must change said, Said the worm to the bud, Though not to a rose, Petals fade That wings may rise Borne on the wind. You are changing said death to the maiden, your wan face To memory, to beauty. Are you ready to change? Says the thought to the heart, to let her pass All your life long For the unknown, the unborn In the alchemy Of the world's dream? You will change, says the stars to the sun, Says the night to the stars.

  2. Sonnet 123: No, Time, Thou Shalt Not Boast That I Do Change

    No, Time, thou shalt not boast that I do change. Thy pyramids built up with newer might To me are nothing novel, nothing strange; They are but dressings of a former sight. Our dates are brief, and therefore we admire What thou dost foist upon us that is old, And rather make them born to our desire Than think that we before have heard them told. Thy registers and thee I both defy, Not wond'ring at the present, nor the past, For thy records, and what we see doth lie, Made more or less by thy continual haste: This I do vow and this shall ever be: I will be true despite thy scythe and thee.

  3. Change

    Changed? Yes, I will confess it – I have changed. I do not love you in the old fond way. I am your friend still – time has not estranged One kindly feeling of that vanished day. But the bright glamour which made life a dream, The rapture of that time, its sweet content, Like visions of a sleeper’s brain they seem – And yet I cannot tell you how they went. Why do you gaze with such accusing eyes Upon me, dear? It is so very strange That hearts, like all things underneath God’s skies, Should sometimes feel the influence of change? The birds, the flowers, the foliage of the trees, The stars which seem so fixed, and so sublime, Vast continents, and the eternal seas, - All these do change, with ever-changing time. The face our mirror shows us year on year Is not the same; our dearest aim, or need, Our lightest thought, or feeling hope, or fear, All, all the law of alternation heed. How can we ask the human heart to stay, Content with fancies of Youth’s earliest hours? The year outgrows the violets of May, Although, maybe, there are no fairer flowers. And life may hold no sweeter love than this, Which lies so cold, so voiceless, and so dumb, And will I miss it, dear? Why, yes, we miss The violets always – till the roses come!

  4. A Change Of Menu

    Now the new chum loaded his three-nought-three, It's a small-bore gun, but his hopes were big. "I am fed to the teeth with old ewe," said he, "And I might be able to shoot a pig." And he trusted more to his nose than ear To give him warning when pigs were near. Out of his lair in the lignum dark. Where the wild duck nests and the bilbie digs, With a whoof and a snort and a kind of bark There rose the father of all the pigs: And a tiger would have walked wide of him As he stropped his tusks on a leaning limb. Then the new chum's three-nought-three gave tongue Like a popgun fired in an opera bouffe: But a pig that was old when the world was young Is near as possible bullet-proof. (The more you shoot him the less he dies, Unless you catch him between the eyes.) So the new chum saw it was up to him To become extinct if he stopped to shoot; So he made a leap for a gidgee limb While the tusker narrowly missed his boot. Then he found a fork, where he swayed in air As he gripped the boughs like a native bear. The pig sat silent and gaunt and grim To wait and wait till his foe should fall: For night and day were the same to him, And home was any old place at all. "I must wait," said he, "till this sportsman drops; I could use his boots for a pair of strops." The crows that watch from the distant blue Came down to see what it all might mean; An eaglehawk and a cockatoo Bestowed their patronage on the scene. Till a far-off boundary rider said "I must have a look -- there is something dead." Now the new chum sits at his Christmas fare Of a dried-up chop from a tough old ewe. Says he, "It's better than native bear And nearly as tender as kangaroo. An emu's egg I can masticate, But pork," says he, "is the thing I hate."
