Poem by Alfred Edward Housman


Additional Poems. 12. Stay, if You List, O Passer by the Way


Stay, if you list, O passer by the way;
Yet night approaches; better not to stay.
        I never sigh, nor flush, nor knit the brow,
        Nor grieve to think how ill God made me, now.
Here, with one balm for many fevers found,
Whole of an ancient evil, I sleep sound.
