Best Poem of Robert Browning

A Woman's Last Word


Let's contend no more, Love,
Strive nor weep:
All be as before, Love,
---Only sleep!


What so wild as words are?
I and thou
In debate, as birds are,
Hawk on bough!


See the creature stalking
While we speak!
Hush and hide the talking,
Cheek on cheek!


What so false as truth is,
False to thee?
Where the serpent's tooth is
Shun the tree---


Where the apple reddens
Never pry---
Lest we lose our Edens,
Eve and I.


Be a god and hold ...

The Lost Leader


Just for a handful of silver he left us,
Just for a riband to stick in his coat---
Found the one gift of which fortune bereft us,
Lost all the others she lets us devote;
They, with the gold to give, doled him out silver,
So much was theirs who so little allowed:
How all our copper had gone for his service!
