William Henry Davies (Уильям Генри Дэвис (Дэйвис))

Nell Barnes

THEY lived apart for three long years,
    Bill Barnes and Nell his wife; 
He took his joy from other girls,
    She led a wicked life.

Yet ofttimes she would pass his shop,
    With some strange man awhile; 
And, looking, meet her husband's frown
    With her malicious smile.

Until one day, when passing there,
    She saw her man had gone; 
And when she saw the empty shop,
    She fell down with a moan.

And when she heard that he had gone
    Five thousand miles away; 
And that she's see his face no more,
    She sickened from that day.

To see his face was health and life,
    And when it was denied, 
She could not eat, and broke her heart --
    It was for love she died. 

William Henry Davies's other poems:
  1. A Greeting
  2. Joy and Pleasure
  3. The Flood
