Poem Category:  General Poems

Poet:  Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Poet Biography: 
Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861) was born into a well off Victorian family. She displayed an early interest in a variety of literary projects and produced a variety of poems and sonnets.

If all the gentlest-hearted friends I know
Concentred in one heart their gentleness,
That still grew gentler till its pulse was less
For life than pity,--I should yet be slow
To bring my own heart nakedly below
The palm of such a friend, that he should press
Motive, condition, means, appliances,

My false ideal joy and fickle woe,
Out full to light and knowledge; I should fear
Some plait between the brows, some rougher chime
In the free voice. O angels, let your flood
Of bitter scorn dash on me ! do ye hear
What I say who hear calmly all the time
This everlasting face to face with GOD ?
