John Masefield

John Masefield

English poet and novelist
It's a warm wind, the west wind, full of birds' cries; I never hear the west wind but tears are in my eyes. For it comes from the west lands, the old brown hills, And April's in the West wind, and daffodils.More John Masefield quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The Thames is a wretched river after the Mersey and the ships are not like Liverpool ships and the docks are barren of beauty ... it is a beastly hole after Liverpool; for Liverpool is the town of my heart and I would rather sail a mudflat there than command a clipper out of LondonMore John Masefield quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All ye that pass by!
While we least think it he prepares his Mate.
Mate, and the King's pawn played, it never ceases,
Though all the earth is dust of taken pieces.More John Masefield quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Friends and loves we have none, nor wealth, nor blest abode
But the hope, the burning hope, and the road, the lonely road.
Not for us are content, and quiet, and peace of mind,
For we go seeking cities that we shall never find.More John Masefield quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Poetry is a mixture of common sense, which not all have, with an uncommon sense, which very few have.More John Masefield quotes [07/22/2011 03:07:54]
