Thomas Lovell Beddoes (Томас Беддоус)


To Tartar, A Terrier Beauty


       Sonnet

Snowdrop of dogs, with ear of brownest dye,
Like the last orphan leaf of naked tree
Which shudders in black autumn; though by thee,
Of hearing careless and untutored eye,
Not understood articulate speech of men
Nor marked the artificial mind of books,
-The mortal's voice eternized by the pen,-
Yet hast thou thought and language all unknown
To Babel's scholars; oft intensest looks,
Long scrutiny over some dark-veined stone
Dost thou bestow, learning dead mysteries
Of the world's birth-day, oft in eager tone
With quick-tailed fellows bandiest prompt replies,
Solicitudes canine, four-footed amities.



Thomas Lovell Beddoes's other poems:
  1. Song from the Second Brother
  2. Resurrection Song
  3. The Rosy Hour
  4. Song of the Stygian Naiades
  5. Song on the Water
