First Love English poem

First Love (Stanza 1) I ne'er was struck before that hour With love so sudden and so sweet, Her face it bloomed like a sweet flower And stole my heart away complete. My face turned pale as deadly pale. My legs refused to walk away, And when she looked, what could I ail? My life and all seemed turned to clay. First Love (Stanza 2) And then my blood rushed to my face And took my eyesight quite away, The trees and bushes round the place Seemed midnight at noonday. I could not see a single thing, Words from my eyes did start They spoke as chords do from the string, And blood burnt round my heart. First Love (Stanza 3) Are flowers the winter's choice? Is love's bed always snow? She seemed to...

Planet Earth, my home, my place A capricious anomaly in the sea of space Planet Earth, are you just Floating by, a cloud of dust A miner globe, About to bust A piece of metal Bound to rust A speck of matter In a mindless void A lonely spaceship, A large asteroid Cold as rock without a hue Held together with a bit of glue Something tells me this isn't true You are my sweetheart, soft and blue Do you care, have you a part In the deepest emotions of my own hearr Tender with breezes Caressing and whole Alive with music Haunting my soul In my veins I've felt the mystery Of corridors of time, Books of history Like songs of ages Throbbing in my blood Have danced the rhythm Of the tide and flood Your misty cloud Your electric storm Were turbulent tempests In my own form I've licked the salt The bitter,...

Poems: The Song of Wandering Aengus

The Song of Wandering Aengus Related Poem Content Details BY WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS I went out to the hazel wood, Because a fire was in my head, And cut and peeled a hazel wand, And hooked a berry to a thread; And when white moths were on the wing, And moth-like stars were flickering out, I dropped the berry in a stream And caught a little silver trout. When I had laid it on the floor I went to blow the fire a-flame, But something rustled on the floor, And someone called me by my name: It had become a glimmering girl With apple blossom in her hair Who called me by my name and ran And faded through the brightening air. Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she...
