Poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay

Renascence and Other Poems by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Renascence
     All I could see from where I stood

Interim
     The room is full of you! -- As I came in

The Suicide
     "Curse thee, Life, I will live with thee no more!

God's World
     O world, I cannot hold thee close enough!

Afternoon on a Hill
     I will be the gladdest thing

Sorrow
     Sorrow like a ceaseless rain

Tavern
     I'll keep a little tavern

Ashes of Life
     Love has gone and left me and the days are all alike;

The Little Ghost
     I knew her for a little ghost

Kin to Sorrow
     Am I kin to Sorrow,

Three Songs of Shattering

The Shroud
     Death, I say, my heart is bowed

The Dream
     Love, if I weep it will not matter,

Indifference
     I said, -- for Love was laggard, O, Love was slow to come, --

Witch-Wife
     She is neither pink nor pale,

Blight
     Hard seeds of hate I planted

When the Year Grows Old
     I cannot but remember

Sonnets

I
     Thou art not lovelier than lilacs, -- no,

II
     Time does not bring relief; you all have lied

III
     Mindful of you the sodden earth in spring,

IV
     Not in this chamber only at my birth --

V
     If I should learn, in some quite casual way,

VI     Bluebeard
     This door you might not open, and you did;
