Louise Imogen Guiney (Луиза Имоджен Гвини)

Writ in my Lord Clarendon’s “History of the Rebellion”

How life hath cheapened, and how blank
The Worlde is! like a fen
Where long ago unstainèd sank
The starrie gentlemen:
Since Marston Moor and Newbury drank
King Charles his gentlemen.

If Fate in any air accords
What Fate denied, O then
I ask to be among your Swordes,
My joyous gentlemen;
Towards Honour’s heaven to goe, and towards
King Charles his gentlemen!

Louise Imogen Guiney’s other poems:

  1. Undertones at Magdalen
  2. Columba and the Stork
  3. An Epitaph for William Hazlitt
  4. On Leaving Winchester
  5. On First Entering Westminster Abbey
