J.Edgar Middleton Poems

Best Poem of J.Edgar Middleton

Peace And War
A pleasant river, clear and blue,

Went singing to the sea.
The sunbeam joined them hand in hand

To dance the melody.
The courtly rushes bowed their heads

As nobles to the Queen,
And saw, reflected in the wave,
Their coats of Lincoln green.

God made such horrors? Count that word . . .

Hell's Half Acre
Six years of life in the reek of things
Where love is a fay unknown;
A wolfish boy on the crowded street
Who stoops for the cruel stone;
No laughter-light in his infant eyes,
No joy and no baby shame.
'Tis Hell's Half Acre has made him thus
And we are the ones to blame.

Oh, look you well at . . .
