William Morris (Уильям Моррис)


The Doomed Ship


The doomed ship drives on helpless through the sea,
All that the mariners may do is done
And death is left for men to gaze upon,
While side by side two friends sit silently;
Friends once, foes once, and now by death made free
Of Love and Hate, of all things lost or won;
Yet still the wonder of that strife bygone
Clouds all the hope or horror that may be.

Thus, Sorrow, are we sitting side by side
Amid this welter of the grey despair,
Nor have we images of foul or fair
To vex, save of thy kissed face of a bride,
Thy scornful face of tears when I was tried,
And failed neath pain I was not made to bear. 



William Morris's other poems:
  1. Atalanta's Race
  2. Pray But One Prayer For Us
  3. Thunder In The Garden
  4. Song I: Though The World Be A-Waning
  5. The Flowering Orchard
