Poems by Helen Hunt Jackson

Sorted by title, showing title and first line

No days such honored days as these! When yet
Silence again. The glorious symphony
The lakes of ice gleam bluer than the lakes
Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
O winter! frozen pulse and heart of fire,
Some flowers are withered and some joys have died;
O month whose promise and fulfilment blend,
Month which the warring ancients strangely styled
O month when they who love must love and wed!
This is the treacherous month when autumn days
The month of carnival of all the year,
O golden month! How high thy gold is heaped!
