At Tiber Mouth At Tiber Mouth

At Tiber Mouth
The low plains stretch to the west with a glimmer of rustling weeds, Where the waves of a golden river wind home by the marshy meads; And the strong wind born of the sea grows faint with a sickly breath, As it stays in the fretting rushes and blows on the dews of death. We came to the silent city, in the glare of the noontide heat, When the sound of a whisper rang through the length of the lonely street;...

Hic Jacet Hic Jacet

Hic Jacet
Did you play here child The whole spring through And smiled and smiled And never knew?-- Where the shade is cool And the grass grows deep, One that was beautiful Lies in his sleep. Ah no child, never Will he arise, The sleep was for ever... Poems - Post by : Charlotte - Date : November 2011 - Author : Rennell Rodd - Read : 1737

In Chartres Cathedral In Chartres Cathedral

In Chartres Cathedral
Through yonder windows stained and old Four level rays of red and gold Strike down the twilight dim, Four lifted heads are aureoled Of the sculptured cherubim, And soft like sounds on faint winds blown Of voices dying far away, The organ's dreamy undertone, The murmur while they pray;...

Requiescat Requiescat

Requiescat
He had the poet's eyes, --Sing to him sleeping,-- Sweet grace of low replies, --Why are we weeping? He had the gentle ways, --Fair dreams befall him!-- Beauty through all his days, --Then why recall him?-- That which in him was fair Still shall be ours: Yet, yet my heart lies...

Disillusion Disillusion

Disillusion
Ah! what would youth be doing To hoist his crimson sails, To leave the wood-doves cooing, The song of nightingales; To leave this woodland quiet For murmuring winds at strife, For waves that foam and riot About the seas of life? From still bays silver sanded Wild currents hasten down, To... Poems - Post by : smajor - Date : November 2011 - Author : Rennell Rodd - Read : 1570

Endymion Endymion

Endymion
She came upon me in the middle day, Bowed o'er the waters of a mountain mere; Where dimly mirrored in the ripple's play I saw some fair thing near. I saw the waters lapping round her feet, The widening rings spread, follow out and die, I saw the mirror and the mirrored meet, And heard a voice...

After Heine (how The Mirrored Moonbeams Quiver) After Heine (how The Mirrored Moonbeams Quiver)

After Heine (how The Mirrored Moonbeams Quiver)
How the mirrored moonbeams quiver On the waters' fall and rise, Yet the moon serene as ever Wanders through the quiet skies. Like the mirrored moonlight's fretting Are the dreams I have of you, For my heart will beat, forgetting You are ever calm and true.(The end)Rennell Rodd's poem: After Heine (How The Mirrored Moonbeams Quiver)...

After Heine (beautiful Fisherman's Daughter)
Beautiful fisherman's daughter, Steer in your bark to the land! Come down to me over the water And talk to me hand in hand! Lay here on my heart those tresses, For look, what have you to fear Who are bold with the sea's caresses Every day in the year? My heart is at one with the deep...

A Star-dream A Star-dream

A Star-dream
There was a night when you and I Looked up from where we lay, When we were children, and the sky Was not so far away. We looked toward the deep dark blue Beyond our window bars, And into all our dreaming drew The spirit of the stars. We did not see the world asleep--...

'those Days Are Long Departed' "those Days Are Long Departed"

'those Days Are Long Departed'
Those days are long departed, Gone where the dead dreams are, Since we two children started To look for the morning star. We asked our way of the swallow In his language that we knew, We were sad we could not follow So swift the blue bird flew. We set our wherry drifting Between the...

After Heine (the Leaves Are Falling, Falling) After Heine (the Leaves Are Falling, Falling)

After Heine (the Leaves Are Falling, Falling)
The leaves are falling, falling, The yellow treetops wave, Ah, all delight and beauty Is drawing to the grave. About the wood's crest flicker The wan sun's laggard rays, They are the parting kisses Of fleeting summer days. Meseems I should be shedding The heart's-tears from my eyes, The day will...

'when I Am Dead' "when I Am Dead"

'when I Am Dead'
When I am dead, my spirit Shall wander far and free, Through realms the dead inherit Of earth and sky and sea; Through morning dawn and gloaming, By midnight moons at will, By shores where the waves are foaming, By seas where the waves are still. I, following late behind you, In wingless sleepless flight,... Poems - Post by : crystal - Date : November 2011 - Author : Rennell Rodd - Read : 787

The Daisy The Daisy

The Daisy
With little white leaves in the grasses, Spread wide for the smile of the sun, It waits till the daylight passes, And closes them one by one. I have asked why it closed at even, And I know what it wished to say: There are stars all night in the heaven, And I am the star of day. 1881.(The end)Rennell Rodd's...

Atalanta Atalanta

Atalanta
Wait not along the shore, they will not come; The suns go down beyond the windy seas, Those weary sails shall never wing them home O'er this white foam; No voice from these On any landward wind that dies among the trees. Gone south, it may be, rudderless, astray,... Poems - Post by : BillHely - Date : November 2011 - Author : Rennell Rodd - Read : 1994

The 'autumn Wind Goes Sighing'
"Ερωτοϛ" Ανδοϛ The autumn wind goes sighing Through the quivering aspen tree, The swallows will be flying Toward their summer sea; The grapes begin to sweeten On the trellised vine above, And on my brows have beaten The little wings of love. Oh wind if you should meet her You will... Poems - Post by : drew.peacock - Date : November 2011 - Author : Rennell Rodd - Read : 844

A Song Of Autumn A Song Of Autumn

A Song Of Autumn
All through the golden weather Until the autumn fell, Our lives went by together So wildly and so well.-- But autumn's wind uncloses The heart of all your flowers, I think as with the roses, So hath it been with ours. Like some divided river Your ways and mine will be,... Poems - Post by : mstangslly69 - Date : November 2011 - Author : Rennell Rodd - Read : 1969

'where The Rhone Goes Down To The Sea' "where The Rhone Goes Down To The Sea"

'where The Rhone Goes Down To The Sea'
A sweet still night of the vintage time, Where the Rhone goes down to the sea; The distant sound of a midnight chime Comes over the wave to me. Only the hills and the stars o'erhead Bring back dreams of the days long dead, While the Rhone goes down to the sea. The years are long, and the world is wide,...

Long After Long After

Long After
I see your white arras gliding, In music o'er the keys, Long drooping lashes hiding A blue like summer seas: The sweet lips wide asunder, That tremble as you sing, I could not choose but wonder, You seemed so fair a thing. For all these long years after The dream has never died,... Poems - Post by : Brent - Date : November 2011 - Author : Rennell Rodd - Read : 2972

On The Border Hills On The Border Hills

On The Border Hills
So the dark shadows deepen in the trees That crown the border mountains, all the air Is filled with mist-begotten phantasies, Shaped and transfigured in the sunset glare. What wildly spurring warrior-wraiths are these? What tossing headgear, and what red-gold hair? What lances flashing, what far trumpet's blare That dies along the desultory breeze? Slow night comes creeping with her misty... Poems - Post by : ortaz - Date : November 2011 - Author : Rennell Rodd - Read : 3076

'atque In Perpetuum Frater Ave Atque Vale' "atque In Perpetuum Frater Ave Atque Vale"

'atque In Perpetuum Frater Ave Atque Vale'
This was the end love made,--the hard-drawn breath, The last long sigh that ever man sighs here; And then for us, the great unanswered fear, Will love live on,--the other side of death? Only a year, and I had hoped to spend A life of pleasant communing, to be A kindred spirit holding fast to thee, We never thought that love had such an end....
