mid the gorse the raspberry red for the gather of Springs two children did we stray and talk wise idle childish things she listened with big lips surprised breast deep mid flower in spine her skin was like a grape whose veins runs no instead of wine she knew not those sweet words she spake nor knew her own sweet way but there's never a bird so sweet a song thronged in whose throat that day oh there are flowers in storing ttan on the turf and on the spray but the sweetest flower on Sussex hills was the daisy flower that day her beauty's smooth Earth's furrowed face she gave me tokens three a look a word of her winsome mouth and a wild raspberry a berry red AG eyeless look a still word strings of sand and yet they made my wild wild heart fly down to her little hand for standing artless as the air and candid as the skies she took the berries with her hand and the love with her sweet eyes the fairest things have fleetest and their scent survives their clothes but the roses scent is bitterness to him that loved the rose she looked a little wistfully then went her sunshine way the Seas I had a mist on it and the leaves fell from the day she went her unremember away she went and left in me the pang of all the partings gone and partings yet to be she left me marveling why my soul was sad that she was glad at all the sadness in the sweet the sweetness in the sad still still I

in sleepy savageries with mouth wide about for a sultry kiss a child and man paced side-by-side treading the skirts of Eventide but between the clasp of his hand in hers lay felt not twenty with her tears she turned with the route of her dusk South hair and saw the sleeping gypsy there and snatched and snapped it in swift child's whim with keep it long as you live to him and his smile as nymphs

this recording is in the public domain annika thought dying by Francis Thompson read for librivox.org by John Burlinson you owe the piteous you who all the long night through anticipated Lee disclose yourself to me already in the ways beyond our human comfortable days how can you deem what death in pitiably saith to me who listening wake for your poor sake when a grown woman dies you know we think unceasingly what things she said how sweet how wise and these do make our misery but you you to me the dead anticipated Lee you 11 years was not also with just a child do you know and so you never said things sweet immediately and wise to interdict from closure my wet eyes but foolish things my dead I did little and laughable your age that fitted well and was it such things all unmemorable was it such things could make me sob all night for your implacable sake yet as you said to me in pretty make-believe of revelry so the night long said death with his magniloquent breath and that remembered laughter which in our daily uses followed after was all unto wound to pity into all a cup of chocolate one farthing is the rate you drink it through a straw how could I know how no those laughing words when drenched with sobbing so another voice than yours than yours he had my dear was worth his breath his mighty utterance yet he saith and sayeth this dreadful death to his own dreadfulness death dreadful wrong this dreadful childish babble on his tongue that I on tongue made to speak sentences and wisdom in supportively complete why should it only say the long night through in mimicry of you the top of chocolate one farthing is the rate you drink it through a straw a straw a straw of all sentences piercingly incomplete why did you teach that fatal mouth to draw child impermissible or from your old trivial nasai I have you done me this most unsustainable wrong and intra deaths control betrayed the secret places of my soul teaching him that his lips uttering their native earthquake and eclipse could never so avail to rend from him to him the ultimate veil of this most solid spirit and leave it stripped and desecrate nay never so have wrung from eyes and speech weakness unmanned unmeet as when his terrible dotage to repeat its little lesson learn a–the at your feet was when he sits among his supporters to play with broken toys your hand has cast away with derelict trinkets of the darling young why have you taught that he might so complete his awful panoply from your cast playthings why this dreadful childish babble to his tongue dreadful and sweet end
