Poems of Augusta Davies Webster

81. Young May sat fainting and chill 4/2/2010
82. Young Laughters, and My Music! 1/3/2003
83. Yu-Pe-Ya’s Dirge For Tse-Ky 4/2/2010


No, mother, I am not sad:
Why think me sad? I was always still,
You remember, even when my heart was most glad
And you used to let me dream at my will;
And now I like better to watch the sea
And the calm sad sky than to laugh with the rest.
You know they are full of chatter and glee,
And I like the quietness best.

[Hata Bildir]
