Poem by Alfred Edward Housman


More Poems. 29. From the Wash the Laundress Sends


From the wash the laundress sends
My collars home with ravelled ends:
1 must fit, now these are frayed,
My neck with new ones London-made.
Homespun collars, homespun hearts,
Wear to rags in foreign parts.
Mine at leastТs as good as done,
And I must get a London one.
