Siegfried Sassoon

Here you will find the Poem Alone of poet Siegfried Sassoon


I?ve listened: and all the sounds I heard 
Were music,?wind, and stream, and bird. 
With youth who sang from hill to hill 
I?ve listened: my heart is hungry still. 

I?ve looked: the morning world was green;
Bright roofs and towers of town I?ve seen; 
And stars, wheeling through wingless night. 
I?ve looked: and my soul yet longs for light. 

I?ve thought: but in my sense survives 
Only the impulse of those lives
That were my making. Hear me say 
`I?ve thought!??and darkness hides my day.
