Poem by Alfred Edward Housman


Additional Poems. 11a. They Shall Have Breath that Never Were


 They shall have breath that never were,
But he that was shall have it neer;
The unconceived and unbegot
Shall look on heaven, but he shall not.

 The heart with many wildfires lit,
Ice is not so cold as it.
The thirst that rivers could not lay
A little dust has quenched for aye;
And in a fathoms compass lie
Thoughts much wider than the sky.
