William Ernest Henley (Уильям Эрнст Хенли)


Crosses And Troubles


Crosses and troubles a-many have proved me.
One or two women (God bless them) have loved me.
I have worked and dreamed, and I’ve talked at will.
Of art and drink I have had my fill.
I’ve comforted here, and I succoured there.
I’ve faced my foes, and I backed my friends.
I’ve blundered, and sometimes made amends.
I’ve prayed for light, and I’ve known despair.
Now I look before, as I look behind,
Come storm, come shine, whatever befall,
With a grateful heart and a constant mind,
For the end I know is the best of all.

  2. From A Window In Princes Street
  3. From The Break The Nightingale
  4. Bring Her Again, O Western Wind
  5. Apparition
