Bliss Carman (Блисс Кармен)


The Angel of Joy


There is no grief for me
Nor sadness any more;
For since I first knew thee
Great Joy has kept my door.

That angel of the calm
All-comprehending smile,
No menace can dismay,
No falsity beguile.

Out of the house of life
Before him fled away
Languor, regret, and strife
And sorrow on that day.

Grim fear, unmanly doubt,
And impotent despair
Went at his bidding forth
Among the things that were,—

Leaving a place all clean,
Resounding of the sea
And decked with forest green,
To be a home for thee.



Bliss Carman's other poems:
  1. The Flute of Spring
  2. Triumphalis
  3. The Givers of Life
  4. To a Young Lady on Her Birthday
  5. Morning in the Hills
