A. E. Housman: Eight O’Clock

fdm poearch04

 

A. E. Housman

(1859-1936)

 

Eight O’Clock

 

He stood, and heard the steeple

Sprinkle the quarters on the morning town.

One, two, three, four, to market-place and people

It tossed them down.

 

Strapped, noosed, nighing his hour,

He stood and counted them and cursed his luck;

And then the clock collected in the tower

Its strength, and struck.

Alfred Edward Housman: Here Dead We Lie

- Housman

Alfred Edward Housman

(1859 – 1936)

 

Here Dead We Lie

 

Here dead we lie

Because we did not choose

To live and shame the land

From which we sprung.

 

Life, to be sure,

Is nothing much to lose,

But young men think it is,

And we were young.
