POEMS BY JEAN INGELOW

VOLUME II.

TO JEAN INGELOW.

When youth was high, and life was new And days sped musical and fleet, She stood amid the morning dew, And sang her earliest measures sweet, Sang as the lark sings, speeding fair To touch and taste the purer air, To gain a nearer view of Heaven; 'Twas then she sang "The Songs of Seven."

Now, farther on in womanhood, With trainèd voice and ripened art, She gently stands where once she stood, And sings from out her deeper heart. Sing on, dear Singer! sing again; And we will listen to the strain, Till soaring earth greets bending Heaven, And seven fold songs grow seventy seven.

POEMS

ROSAMUND.

His blew His winds, and they were scattered.

'One soweth and another reapeth.' Ay, Too true, too true. One soweth unaware Cometh a reaper stealthily while he dreams Bindeth the golden sheaf, and in his bosom As 't were between the dewfall and the dawn Bears it away. Who other was to blame? Is it I? Is it I? No verily, not I, 'T was a good action, and I smart therefore; Oblivion of a righteous enmity Wrought me this wrong. I pay with my self ruth That I had ruth toward mine enemy; It needed not to slay mine enemy, Only to let him lie and succourless Drift to the foot o' the Everlasting Throne; Being mine enemy, he had not accused One of my nation there of unkind deeds Or ought the way of war forbids. Let be! I will not think upon it. Yet she was O, she was dear; my dutiful, dear child. One soweth Nay, but I will tell this out, The first fyte was the best, I call it such For now as some old song men think on it... Continue reading book >>
