Poem by Alfred Edward Housman


More Poems. 7. Stars, I Have Seen them Fall


Stars, I have seen them fall,
        But when they drop and die
No star is lost at all
        From all the star-sown sky.
The toil of all that be
        Helps not the primal fault;
It rains into the sea,
        And still the sea is salt.
