Joyce Kilmer (Джойс Килмер)


Love's Lantern


(For Aline)

Because the road was steep and long
And through a dark and lonely land,
God set upon my lips a song
And put a lantern in my hand.
Through miles on weary miles of night
That stretch relentless in my way
My lantern burns serene and white,
An unexhausted cup of day.
O golden lights and lights like wine,
How dim your boasted splendors are.
Behold this little lamp of mine;
It is more starlike than a star!



Joyce Kilmer's other poems:
  1. The Robe of Christ
  2. Madness
  3. The Proud Poet
  4. Mid-ocean in War-time
  5. The Cathedral of Rheims
