Frederick Goddard Tuckerman (Фредерик Годдард Такерман)


First Series. 6. Not sometimes, but to him that heeds the whole


Not sometimes, but to him that heeds the whole
And in the Ample reads his personal page,
Laboring to reconcile, content, assuage
The vexed condition of his heritage,
Forever waits an angel at the goal.
And ills seem but as food for spirits sage,
And grief becomes a dark apparelage,
The weed and wearing of the sacred soul.
Might I but count, but here, one watchlight spark!
But vain, O vain this turning for the light,
Vain as a groping hand to rend the dark--
I call, entangled in the night, a night
Of wind and voices, but the gusty roll
Is vague, nor comes their cheer of pilotage.



Frederick Goddard Tuckerman's other poems:
  1. First Series. 7. Dank fens of cedar, hemlock branches gray
  2. First Series. 26. For Nature daily through her grand design
  3. First Series. 27. So to the mind long brooding but on it
  4. Third Series. 10. Sometimes I walk where the deep water dips
  5. First Series. 5. And so the day drops by, the horizon draws
