Home from the sea
Poems Find and share the perfect poems. This poem is in the public domain. All by myself I have to go, With none to tell me what to do-- All alone beside the streams And up the mountain-sides of dreams. The strangest things are there for me, Both things to eat and things to see, And many frightening sights abroad Till morning in the land of Nod. Try as I like to find the way, I never can get back by day, Nor can remember plain and clear The curious music that I hear.
Robert Louis Stevenson The Dumb Soldier When the grass was closely mown, Walking on the lawn alone, In the turf a hole I found, And hid a soldier underground. Spring and daisies came apace; Grasses hide my hiding place; Grasses run like a green sea O'er the lawn up to my knee.

Under grass alone he lies, Looking up with leaden eyes, Scarlet coat and pointed gun, To the stars and to the sun. When the grass is ripe like grain, When the scythe is stoned again, When the lawn is shaven clear, Then my hole shall reappear. I shall find him, never fear, I shall find my grenadier; But for all that's gone and come, I shall find my soldier dumb. He has lived, a little thing, In the grassy woods of spring; Done, if he could tell me true, Just as I should like to do.
He has seen the starry hours And the springing of the flowers; And the fairy things that pass In the forests of the grass. In the silence he has heard Talking bee and ladybird, And the butterfly has flown O'er him as he lay alone.
In this version, painted in , a boy, evidently just back from a tour with the navy, mourns over the grave of his mother who has apparently died while he was at sea. His sister sits nearby, unable to console him. While the expressions are soft and not very anguished, the overall effect of the picture is quite wrenching.

Notice also the detail of the lamb behind the tombstone in the background. The landscape is one of those old churchyards that are so evocative of the English countryside. It is believed that the place depicted here is Chingford, Essex. Hughes was the exemplar of the lush romantic painter of the late 19th century. He was only 30 when he did this painting.
The detail is so impressive that it seems to leap off my HD computer screen.
