William Ernest Henley (Уильям Эрнст Хенли)


* * *


WITH strawberries we filled a tray,
And then we drove away, away
Along the links beside the sea,
Where wave and wind were light and free,
And August felt as fresh as May.
And where the springy turf was gay
With thyme and balm and many a spray
Of wild roses, you tempted me
With strawberries.
A shadowy sail, silent and gray,
Stole like a ghost across the bay;
But none could hear me ask my fee,
And none could know what came to be.
Can sweethearts all their thirst allay
With strawberries? 



William Ernest Henley's other poems:
  1. In Fisherrow
  2. Time And The Earth
  3. You Played And Sang A Snatch Of Song
  4. We Shall Surely Die
  5. To My Wife
