Poem by Alfred Edward Housman


Last Poems. 28. Now Dreary Dawns the Eastern Light


Now dreary dawns the eastern light,
        And fall of eve is drear,
And cold the poor man lies at night,
        And so goes out the year.

Little is the luck IТve had,
        And oh, Тtis comfort small
To think that many another lad
        Has had no luck at all.
