Famous English Poems



Y soul is awakened, my spirit is soaring

And carried aloft on the wings of the breeze;
For above and around me the wild wind is roaring,
Arousing to rapture the earth and the seas.
           


                             - Anne Bronte


Escape me?

Never—
Beloved!
While I am I, and you are you,
So long as the world contains us both,
Me the loving and you the loth,
While the one eludes, must the other pursue.
My life is a fault at last, I fear:
It seems too much like a fate, indeed!
Though I do my best I shall scarce succeed.



                           - Robert Browning



When a bar of pure silver or ingot of gold 

Is sent to be flatted or wrought into length, 
It is pass'd between cylinders often, and roll'd 
In an engine of utmost mechanical strength. 

                         - William Cowper



A Childs Hymn

Hear my prayer, O heavenly Father,
Ere I lay me down to sleep;
Bid Thy angels, pure and holy,
Round my bed their vigil keep.



                      - Charles Dickens


Ah, what can ail thee, wretched wight,

Alone and palely loitering;
The sedge is wither'd from the lake,
And no birds sing.


                       - John Keats





O Nightingale that on yon bloomy Spray,
Warbl'st at eve, when all the Woods are still
Thou with fresh hope the Lover's heart dost fill,
While the jolly hours lead on propitious May,
Thy liquid notes that close the eye of Day, 

   

                                       - John Milton

How happy he, who free from care
The rage of courts, and noise of towns;
Contented breathes his native air,
In his own grounds. 

                                     - Alexander Pope

Full fathom five thy Father lies,
Of his bones are Corrall made:
Those are pearles that were his eies,
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a Seachange
Into something rich & strange
SeaNymphs hourly ring his knell.
Harke now I heare them, dingdong, bell.



                                 - William Shakespeare


Like the ghost of a dear friend dead
Is Time long past.
A tone which is now forever fled,
A hope which is now forever past,
A love so sweet it could not last,
Was Time long past.

          

                                   - Percy Bysshe Shelley
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.



                                    - William Wordsworth
