Francis William Bourdillon (Фрэнсис Уильям Бурдильон)


The Debt Unpayable


What have I given,
Bold sailor on the sea?
In earth or heaven,
That you should die for me?

What can I give,
O soldier, leal and brave,
Long as I live,
To pay the life you gave?

What tithe or part
Can I return to thee,
O stricken heart,
That thou shouldst break for me?

The wind of Death
For you has slain life's flowers,
It withereth
(God grant) all weeds in ours. 



Francis William Bourdillon's other poems:
  1. The Acorn
  2. Drought
  3. Sonnet (Oft had I felt, like pure Endymion)
  4. A Spring Evening
  5. On the South Downs
