William Ernest Henley (Уильям Эрнст Хенли)


* * *


From the brake the Nightingale
Sings exulting to the Rose;
Though he sees her waxing pale
In her passionate repose,
While she triumphs waxing frail,
Fading even while she glows;
Though he knows
How it goes -
Knows of last year's Nightingale
Dead with last year's Rose.

Wise the enamoured Nightingale,
Wise the well-beloved Rose!
Love and life shall still prevail,
Nor the silence at the close
Break the magic of the tale
In the telling, though it shows -
Who but knows
How it goes! -
Life a last year's Nightingale,
Love a last year's Rose. 



William Ernest Henley's other poems:
  1. Time And The Earth
  2. As Like The Woman As You Can
  3. Apparition
  4. What is to Come
  5. Scrubber
