  • On moonlit heath and lonesome bank
  • Epitaph on an army of mercenaries
  • Oh stay at home, my lad, and plough
  • When summer's end is nighing
  • Tell me not here, it needs not saying
  • Fancy's knell
  • They say my verse is sad
  • Easter hymn
  • When Israel out of Egypt came
  • For these of old the trader
  • Sage to the young man
  • March
  • Diffugere nives
  • I to my perils
  • Stars, I have seen them fall
  • Give me a land of boughs in leaf --
  • On your midnight pallet lying
  • When I watch the living meet
  • When I was one-and-twenty
  • There pass the careless people
  • Look not in my eyes, for fear
  • It nods and curtseys and recovers
  • Twice a week the winter thorough
  • Oh, when I was in love with you
  • 1887
  • To an athlete dying young
  • Oh fair enough are sky and plain
  • Bredon Hill
  • Street sounds to the soldiers' tread
  • Lads in their hundreds to Ludlow come in for the fair
  • Say, lad, have you things to do
  • This time of year a twelvemonth past
  • Along the field as we came by
  • Is my team ploughing
  • Welsh marches
  • Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
  • Lent lily
  • Others, I am not the first
  • On Wenlock Edge the wood's in trouble
  • From far, from eve and morning
  • If truth in hearts that perish
  • New mistress
  • On the idle hill of summer
  • White in the moon the long road lies
  • As through the wild green hills of Wyre
  • Winds out of the west land blow
  • Recruit
  • Tis time, I think, by Wenlock town
  • Into my heart an air that kills
  • In my own shire, if I was sad
  • Merry guide
  • Immortal part
  • If it chance your eye offend you
  • Bring, in this timeless grave to throw
  • Carpenter's son
  • Be still, my soul, be still
  • Think no more, lad; laugh, be jolly
  • Reveille
  • Clunton and Clunbury
  • Loitering with a vacant eye
  • Far in a western brookland
  • True lover
  • With rue my heart is laden
  • Westward on the high-hilled plains
  • Day of battle
  • You smile upon your friend to-day
  • When I came last to Ludlow
  • Isle of Portland
  • Oh see how thick the goldcup flowers
  • Now hollow fires burn out to black
  • Hughley Steeple
  • Terence, this is stupid stuff
  • I hoed and trenched and weeded
  • We'll to the woods no more
  • West
  • As I gird on for fighting
  • Her strong enchantments failing
  • Illis jacet
  • Grenadier
  • When the lad for longing sighs
  • Lancer
  • In valleys green and still
  • Soldier from the ars returning
  • Chestnut casts his flambeaux
  • Yonder see the morning blink
  • Laws of God, the laws of man
  • Deserter
  • Culprit
  • Eight o'clock
  • Spring morning
  • When smoke stood up from Ludlow
  • Astronomy
  • Rain, it streams on stone and hillock
  • In midnights of November
  • Night is freezing fast
  • Fairies break their dances
  • Sloe was lost in flower
  • In the morning, in the morning
  • Epithalamium
  • Oracles
  • Half-moon westers low, my love
  • Farewell to barn and stack and tree
  • Sigh that heaves the grasses
  • Now dreary dawns the eastern light
  • Wake not for the world-heard thunder
  • Sunner's rue
  • Hell gate
  • When I would muse in boyhood
  • When the eye of day is shut
  • First of May
  • When first my way to fair I took
  • Revolution
  • Bells in tower at evening toll
  • Delight it is in youth and May
  • Mill-stream, now that noises cease
  • Like mine, the veins of these that slumber
  • World goes none the lamer
  • Ho, everyone that thirsteth
  • Crossing alone the nighted ferry
  • Stone, stell, dominions pass
  • Yon flakes that fret the eastern sky
  • I counsel you beware
  • When green buds hang in the elm like dust
  • To stand up straight and tread the turning mill
  • He, standing hushed, a pace or two apart
  • From the wash the laundress sends
  • Shake hands, we shall never be friends
  • Because I liked you better
  • With seed the sowers scatter
  • On forelands high in heaven
  • Young is the blood that yonder
  • Half-way, for one commandment broken
  • Here dead lie we because we did not choose
  • Weeping Pleiads wester
  • I did not lose my heart in summer's even
  • By shores and woods and steeples
  • My dreams are of a field afar
  • Farewell to a name and a number
  • He looked at me with eyes I thought
  • A.J.J.
  • I wake from dreams and turning
  • Far known to sea and shore
  • Smooth between sea and land
  • Land of Biscay
  • Rainy Pleiads wester
  • For my funeral
  • Parta Quies
  • Atys
  • Oh were he and I together
  • When Adam walked in Eden young
  • It is no gift I tender
  • Here are the skies, the planets seven
  • Ask me no more, for fear I should reply
  • He would not stay for me
  • Now to her lap the incestuous earth
  • I promise nothing : friends will part
  • When the bells justle in the tower
  • Oh, on my breast in days hereafter
  • God's acre
  • An epitaph
  • Oh turn not in from marching
  • Oh is it the jar of nations
  • Tis five years since, 'An end', said I
  • Some can gaze and not be sick
  • Stars have not dealt me the worst they could do
  • Oh who is that young sinner with the handcuffs on his wrists
  • I lay me down and slumber
  • Defeated
  • I shall not die for you
  • New Year's Eve
  • R.L.S.
  • Olive
  • Now do our eyes behold /
  • translated from Aeschylus
