Edward Thomas (Эдвард Томас)


* * *


IF I should ever by chance grow rich
I'll buy Codham, Cockridden, and Childerditch,
Roses, Pyrgo, and Lapwater,
And let them all to my eldest daughter.
The rent I shall ask of her will be only
Each year's first violets, white and lonely,
The first primroses and orchises--
She must find them before I do, that is.
But if she finds a blossom on furze
Without rent they shall all forever be hers,
Codham, Cockridden, and Childerditch,
Roses, Pyrgo, and Lapwater,--
I shall give them all to my elder daughter. 



Edward Thomas's other poems:
  1. In Memoriam (Easter, 1915)
  2. Haymaking
  3. The Long Small Room
  4. Gone, Gone Again
  5. The Lane
