James Thomson (Джеймс Томсон)


Gifts


GIVE a man a horse he can ride,
   Give a man a boat he can sail;
And his rank and wealth, his strength and health,
   On sea nor shore shall fail.

Give a man a pipe he can smoke,
   Give a man a book he can read:
And his home is bright with a calm delight,
   Though the room be poor indeed.

Give a man a girl he can love,
   As I, O my love, love thee;
And his heart is great with the pulse of Fate,
   At home, on land, on sea. 



James Thomson's other poems:
  1. Sheep-Sheering
  2. A Poem Sacred to the Memory of Sir Isaac Newton
  3. Lines on Marle Field
  4. On a Country Life
  5. Care of Birds for Their Young
