Poem Title:  My Thrush

Poem Category:  Nature Poems

Poet:  Edward James Mortimer Collins

Poet Biography: 
Edward James Mortimer Collins (1827-1876) was an English Poet



Poem: 
All through the sultry hours of June, from morning blithe to golden noon, And till the star of evening climbs the gray-blue East, a world too soon, there sings a Thrush amid the limes. God's poet hid in foliage green, Sings endless songs, himself unseen; Right seldom come his silent times. Linger, ye summer hours serene! Sing on, dear Thrush, amid the limes! Nor from these confines wander out, Where the old gun, bucolic lout, Commits all day his murderous crimes: Though cherries ripe are sweet, no doubt, Sweeter thy song amid the limes. May I not dream God sends thee there, Thou mellow angel of the air, Even to rebuke my earthlier rhymes with music's soul, all praise and prayer? Is that thy lesson in the limes? Closer to God art thou than I: his minstrel thou, whose brown wings fly Through silent ether's summer climes. Ah, never may thy music die! Sing on, dear Thrush, amid the limes!
