Contents: If in that Syrian garden, ages slain --
When Israel out of Egypt came --
for these of old the trader --
O youth whose heart is right --
The snows are fled away, leaves on the shaws --
I to my perils of cheat and charmer --
Stars, I have seen them fall --
Give me a land of boughs in leaf --
When green buds hang in the elm like dust --
The weeping Pleiads wester --
The rainy Pleiads wester --
I promise nothing: friends will part --
I lay me down and slumber --
The farms of home lie lost in even --
Tarry, delight, so seldom met --
How clear, how lovely bright --
Bells in tower at evening toll --
Delight it is in youth and May --
The mill-stream, now that noises cease --
Like mine, the veins of these that slumber --
The world goes none the lamer --
Ho, everyone that thirsteth --
Crossing alone the nighted ferry --
Stone, steel and kingdoms pass --
Yon fire that frets the eastern sky --
Good creatures, do you love your lives --
To stand up straight, and tread the turning mill --
He, standing hushed, a pace or two apart --
From the wash the laundress sends --
Shake hands, we shall never be friends, all's over --
Because I liked you better --
With seed the sowers scatter --
On forelands high in heaven --
Young is the blood that yonder --
Half-way, for one commandment broken --
Here dead lie we because we did not choose --
I did not lose my heart in summer's even --
By shores and woods and steeples --
My dreams are of a field afar --
Farewell to a name and a number --
He looked at me with eyes I thought --
When he's returned, I'll tell him-oh --
I wake from dreams and turning --
Far known to sea and shore --
Smooth between sea and land --
Sons of landsmen, sons of seamen, hear the tale of grief and me --
O thou that from thy mansion --
Good night. Ensured release --
Alternative readings --
Dated poems.
Responsibility: A.E. Housman.
