Poems in English


Many a phrase has the English language

Many a phrase has the English language
I have heard but one
Low as the laughter of the Cricket,
Loud, as the Thunder’s Tongue

Murmuring, like old Caspian Choirs,
When the Tide’s a’ lull
Saying itself in new inflection
Like a Whippoorwill

Breaking in bright Orthography
On my simple sleep
Thundering its Prospective
Till I stir, and weep

Not for the Sorrow, done me
But the push of Joy
Say it again, Saxton!
Hush Only to me!
