Citações Alfred Noyes

„Carol, every violet has
Heaven for a looking-glass!“

—  Alfred Noyes
Context: p>Carol, every violet has Heaven for a looking-glass!Every little valley lies Under many-clouded skies; Every little cottage stands Girt about with boundless lands; Every little glimmering pond Claims the mighty shores beyond; Shores no seaman ever hailed, Seas no ship has ever sailed.All the shores when day is done Fade into the setting sun, So the story tries to teach More than can be told in speech.</p Epilogue

„Every little glimmering pond
Claims the mighty shores beyond;
Shores no seaman ever hailed,
Seas no ship has ever sailed.“

—  Alfred Noyes
Context: p>Carol, every violet has Heaven for a looking-glass!Every little valley lies Under many-clouded skies; Every little cottage stands Girt about with boundless lands; Every little glimmering pond Claims the mighty shores beyond; Shores no seaman ever hailed, Seas no ship has ever sailed.All the shores when day is done Fade into the setting sun, So the story tries to teach More than can be told in speech.</p Epilogue

„Critics, you have been so kind,
I would not have you think me blind“

—  Alfred Noyes
Context: Critics, you have been so kind, I would not have you think me blind To all the wisdom that you preach; Yet before I strictlier run In straiter lines of chiselled speech, Give me one more hour, just one Hour to hunt the fairy gleam That flutters through this childish dream. Apologia

„For, while our souls in darkness dwell,
We know that Thou art there.“

—  Alfred Noyes
Context: p>Grant us the single heart once more That mocks no sacred thing, The Sword of Truth our fathers wore When Thou wast Lord and King. Let darkness unto darkness tell Our deep unspoken prayer; For, while our souls in darkness dwell, We know that Thou art there.</p Dedication, later published as "A Prayer in Time of War"

„Mystery: Time and Tide shall pass,
I am the Wisdom Looking-Glass.“

—  Alfred Noyes
Context: p>Mystery: Time and Tide shall pass, I am the Wisdom Looking-Glass.This is the Ruby none can touch: Many have loved it overmuch; Its fathomless fires flutter and sigh, Being as images of the flame That shall make earth and heaven the same When the fire of the end reddens the sky, And the world consumes like a burning pall, Till where there is nothing, there is all.</p Part III : The Mystic Ruby

„All the shores when day is done
Fade into the setting sun,
So the story tries to teach
More than can be told in speech.“

—  Alfred Noyes
Context: p>Carol, every violet has Heaven for a looking-glass!Every little valley lies Under many-clouded skies; Every little cottage stands Girt about with boundless lands; Every little glimmering pond Claims the mighty shores beyond; Shores no seaman ever hailed, Seas no ship has ever sailed.All the shores when day is done Fade into the setting sun, So the story tries to teach More than can be told in speech.</p Epilogue

„Yes; as the music changes,
Like a prismatic glass,
It takes the light and ranges
Through all the moods that pass“

—  Alfred Noyes
Context: Yes; as the music changes, Like a prismatic glass, It takes the light and ranges Through all the moods that pass; Dissects the common carnival Of passions and regrets, And gives the world a glimpse of all The colours it forgets. The Barrel Organ

„Heart of my heart, we are one with the wind,
One with the clouds that are whirled o'er the lea,
One in many, O broken and blind,
One as the waves are at one with the sea!“

—  Alfred Noyes
Context: Heart of my heart, we are one with the wind, One with the clouds that are whirled o'er the lea, One in many, O broken and blind, One as the waves are at one with the sea! Ay! when life seems scattered apart, Darkens, ends as a tale that is told, One, we are one, O heart of my heart, One, still one, while the world grows old. Unity, § III

„It mocks me as it flies, I know:
All too soon the gleam will go“

—  Alfred Noyes
Context: It mocks me as it flies, I know: All too soon the gleam will go; Yet I love it and shall love My dream that brooks no narrower bars Than bind the darkening heavens above, My Jack o'Lanthorn of the stars: Then, I'll follow it no more, I'll light the lamp: I'll close the door. Apologia

Hang it by the wooden sword we made for little Peterkin!“

And we, who deemed him wise,
We, who believed that Thou wast dead,
How should we seek Thine eyes?“

To the Light that holds the days;
We have sought in haunts of fear
For that all-enfolding sphere:
And lo! it was not far, but near.“

To men in their own tongue!
Leave not the breaking heart to break
Because thine own is strong.“

The Lord of Life is risen again,
The boughs put forth their tender buds, and
Love is Lord of all!“

The Lord of Misrule
