Lionel Johnson

My windows open to the autumn night, In vain I watched for sleep to visit me, How should sleep dull mine ears, and dim my sight, Who saw the stars, and listened to the sea? Ah, how the City of our God is fair! If, without sea, and starless though it be, For joy of the majestic beauty there, Men shall not miss the stars, nor mourn the sea.More Lionel Johnson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
While death and darkness girdle me
I grope for immortality.More Lionel Johnson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Yet, when the city sleeps;
When all the cries are still:
The stars and heavenly deeps
Work out a perfect will.More Lionel Johnson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Yeats, you need ten years in the library, but I have need of ten years in the wilderness.More Lionel Johnson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sombre and rich, the skies;
Great glooms, and starry plains.
Gently the night wind sighs;
Else a vast silence reigns.More Lionel Johnson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
