Inevitable Change

Young as the Spring seemed life when she
Came from her silent East to me;
Unquiet as Autumn was my breast
When she declined into her West.

Such tender, such untroubling things
She taught me, daughter of all Springs;
Such dusty deathly lore I learned
When her last embers redly burned.

How should it hap (Love, canst thou say?)
Such end should be to so pure day?
Such shining chastity give place
To this annulling grave's disgrace?

Such hopes be quenched in this despair,
Grace chilled to granite everywhere?
How should--in vain I cry--how should
That be, alas, which only could!



(The end)
John Freeman's poem: Inevitable Change

Loneliness Loneliness

Loneliness
How green and strange the light is, Creeping through the window. Lying alone in bed,How strange the night is!How still and chill the air is. It seems no sound could live Here in my roomThat now so bare is.All bright and still the room is, But easeless here am I. Deep in my heartCold lonely gloom is!(The end)John Freeman's poem: Loneliness

For You, Mother
I have a dream for you, Mother, Like a soft thick fringe to hide your eyes. I have a surprise for you, Mother, Shaped like a strange butterfly. I have found a way of thinking To make you happy; I have made a song and a poem All twisted into one. If I sing, you listen; If I think, you know.
