1292 Yesterday is History



Yesterday is History,
'Tis so far away -
Yesterday is Poetry -
'Tis Philosophy -
 
Yesterday is mystery -
Where it is Today
While we shrewdly speculate
Flutter both away

739 I many times thought Peace had come



I many times thought Peace had come
When Peace was far away —
As Wrecked Men — deem they sight the Land —
At Centre of the Sea —
 
And struggle slacker — but to prove
As hopelessly as I —
How many the fictitious Shores —
Before the Harbor be —

My Life had stood – a Loaded Gun



My Life had stood – a Loaded Gun –
In Corners – till a Day
The Owner passed – identified –
And carried Me away –
 
And now We roam in Sovereign Woods –
And now We hunt the Doe –
And every time I speak for Him
The Mountains straight reply –
 
And do I smile, such cordial light
Upon the Valley glow –
It is as a Vesuvian face
Had let its pleasure through –
 
And when at Night – Our good Day done –
I guard My Master’s Head –
’Tis better than the Eider Duck’s
Deep Pillow – to have shared –
 
To foe of His – I’m deadly foe –
None stir the second time –
On whom I lay a Yellow Eye –
Or an emphatic Thumb –
 
Though I than He – may longer live
He longer must – than I –
For I have but the power to kill,
Without – the power to die –

A narrow Fellow in the Grass



A narrow Fellow in the Grass
Occasionally rides –
You may have met him – did you not
His notice sudden is –
 
The Grass divides as with a Comb –
A spotted shaft is seen –
And then it closes at your feet
And opens further on –
 
He likes a Boggy Acre
A Floor too cool for Corn –
Yet when a Boy, and Barefoot –
I more than once at Noon
 
Have passed, I thought, a Whip lash
Unbraiding in the Sun
When stooping to secure it
It wrinkled, and was gone –
 
Several of Nature’s People
I know, and they know me –
I feel for them a transport
Of cordiality –
 
But never met this Fellow
Attended, or alone
Without a tighter breathing
And Zero at the Bone –

If You Were Coming In The Fall



If you were coming in the Fall,
I'd brush the Summer by
With half a smile, and half a spurn,
As Housewives do, a Fly.
 
If I could see you in a year,
I'd wind the months in balls -
And put them each in separate Drawers,
For fear the numbers fuse -
 
If only Centuries, delayed,
I'd count them on my Hand,
Subtracting, til my fingers dropped
Into Van Dieman's Land,
 
If certain, when this life was out -
That yours and mine, should be
I'd toss it yonder, like a Rind,
And take Eternity -
 
But, now, uncertain of the length
Of this, that is between,
It goads me, like the Goblin Bee -
That will not state - its sting.

1163 God made no act without a cause



God made no act without a cause,
Nor heart without an aim,
Our inference is premature,
Our premises to blame.

1157 Some Days retired from the rest



Some Days retired from the rest
In soft distinction lie
The Day that a Companion came
Or was obliged to die

1149 I noticed People disappeared



I noticed People disappeared
When but a little child —
Supposed they visited remote
Or settled Regions wild —
But did because they died
A Fact withheld the little child —

1127 Soft as the massacre of Suns



Soft as the massacre of Suns
By Evening's Sabres slain

1117 A Mine there is no Man would own



A Mine there is no Man would own
But must it be conferred,
Demeaning by exclusive wealth
A Universe beside —
 
Potosi never to be spent
But hoarded in the mind
What Misers wring their hands tonight
For Indies in the Ground!

1115 The murmuring of Bees, has ceased



The murmuring of Bees, has ceased
But murmuring of some
Posterior, prophetic,
Has simultaneous come.
The lower metres of the Year
When Nature's laugh is done
The Revelations of the Book
Whose Genesis was June.
Appropriate Creatures to her change
The Typic Mother sends
As Accent fades to interval
With separating Friends
Till what we speculate, has been
And thoughts we will not show
More intimate with us become
Than Persons, that we know.

I cannot meet the Spring unmoved —



I cannot meet the Spring unmoved —
I feel the old desire —
A Hurry with a lingering, mixed,
A Warrant to be fair —
 
A Competition in my sense
With something hid in Her —
And as she vanishes, Remorse
I saw no more of Her.

1478 Look back on Time, with kindly eyes -



Look back on Time, with kindly eyes -
He doubtless did his best -
How softly sinks that trembling sun
In Human Nature's West -

“Faith” is a fine invention (202)



“Faith” is a fine invention
When Gentlemen can see—
But Microscopes are prudent
In an Emergency.

There is no Frigate like a Book



There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away
Nor any Coursers like a Page
Of prancing Poetry –
This Traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of Toll –
How frugal is the Chariot
That bears the Human soul.

955 The Hollows round His eager Eyes



The Hollows round His eager Eyes
Were Pages where to read
Pathetic Histories — although
Himself had not complained.
Biography to All who passed
Of Unobtrusive Pain
Except for the italic Face
Endured, unhelped — unknown.

949 Under the Light, yet under



Under the Light, yet under,
Under the Grass and the Dirt,
Under the Beetle's Cellar
Under the Clover's Root,
 
Further than Arm could stretch
Were it Giant long,
Further than Sunshine could
Were the Day Year long,
 
Over the Light, yet over,
Over the Arc of the Bird —
Over the Comet's chimney —
Over the Cubit's Head,
 
Further than Guess can gallop
Further than Riddle ride —
Oh for a Disc to the Distance
Between Ourselves and the Dead!

938 Fairer through Fading — as the Day



Fairer through Fading — as the Day
Into the Darkness dips away —
Half Her Complexion of the Sun —
Hindering — Haunting — Perishing —
 
Rallies Her Glow, like a dying Friend —
Teasing with glittering Amend —
Only to aggravate the Dark
Through an expiring — perfect — look —

921 If it had no pencil



If it had no pencil
Would it try mine —
Worn — now — and dull — sweet,
Writing much to thee.
If it had no word,
Would it make the Daisy,
Most as big as I was,
When it plucked me?

909 I make His Crescent fill or lack



I make His Crescent fill or lack —
His Nature is at Full
Or Quarter — as I signify —
His Tides — do I control —
 
He holds superior in the Sky
Or gropes, at my Command
Behind inferior Clouds — or round
A Mist's slow Colonnade —
 
But since We hold a Mutual Disc —
And front a Mutual Day —
Which is the Despot, neither knows —
Nor Whose — the Tyranny —

910 Experience is the Angled Road



Experience is the Angled Road
Preferred against the Mind
By — Paradox — the Mind itself —
Presuming it to lead
 
Quite Opposite — How Complicate
The Discipline of Man —
Compelling Him to Choose Himself
His Preappointed Pain —

886 These tested Our Horizon



These tested Our Horizon —
Then disappeared
As Birds before achieving
A Latitude.
 
Our Retrospection of Them
A fixed Delight,
But our Anticipation
A Dice — a Doubt —

To wait an Hour - is long



To wait an Hour — is long —
If Love be just beyond —
To wait Eternity — is short —
If Love reward the end —

917 Love—is anterior to Life



Love—is anterior to Life
Posterior—to Death
Initial of Creation, and
The Exponent of Breath.

1017 To die — without the Dying



To die — without the Dying
And live — without the Life
This is the hardest Miracle
Propounded to Belief.

1222 The Riddle we can guess



The Riddle we can guess
We speedily despise -
Not anything is stale so long
As Yesterday's surprise -

885 Our little Kinsmen — after Rain



Our little Kinsmen — after Rain
In plenty may be seen,
A Pink and Pulpy multitude
The tepid Ground upon.
 
A needless life, it seemed to me
Until a little Bird
As to a Hospitality
Advanced and breakfasted.
 
As I of He, so God of Me
I pondered, may have judged,
And left the little Angle Worm
With Modesties enlarged.

883 The Poets light but Lamps



The Poets light but Lamps —
Themselves — go out —
The Wicks they stimulate —
If vital Light
 
Inhere as do the Suns —
Each Age a Lens
Disseminating their
Circumference —
 

09/05/2021

884 An Everywhere of Silver



An Everywhere of Silver
With Ropes of Sand
To keep it from effacing
The Track called Land.
 

05/05/2021

878 The Sun is gay or stark



The Sun is gay or stark
According to our Deed.
If Merry, He is merrier —
If eager for the Dead
 
Or an expended Day
He helped to make too bright
His mighty pleasure suits Us not
It magnifies Our Freight
 

25/04/2021

868 They ask but our Delight



They ask but our Delight —
The Darlings of the Soil
And grant us all their Countenance
For a penurious smile.

866 Fame is the tint that Scholars leave



Fame is the tint that Scholars leave
Upon their Setting Names —
The Iris not of Occident
That disappears as comes —
