passionate about poetry

this will only be where I put my favorite poems written by some of my favorite poets, even by some I don't care for. I love poetry all the same, it's beautiful and calming.

enjoy :)


1. Sweethearts by Dame Mary Gilmore


IT’S gettin’ bits o’ posies, 
’N’ feelin’ mighty good; 
A-thrillin’ ’cause she loves you, 
An’ wond’rin’ why she should; 

An’ stoppin’ sort o’ sudden, 
Because you’re full o’ thought; 
An’ quick with res’less feelin’s 
That make life seem too short! 

It’s feelin’ ’s if she’d loved you 
Before the world was made; 
As if she still would love you, 
When all our debts are paid; 

As if there’s nothin’ mattered, 
As if the world was good, 
As if the Lord was lookin’, 
An’ sort o’ understood. 

It’s feelin’ kind an’ gentle 
To everything that’s weak, 
And doin’ jus’ sich actions 
As nearly seem to speak; 

Sich actions women reckon 
Are certain to occur 
When he’s in love with some one, 
And that some one is—her.
