Selected Poems

Selected Poems - Oscar Wilde, Robert Mighall description

“I have made my choice, have lived my poems, and, though youth is gone in wasted days, I have found the lover's crown of myrtle better than the poet's crown of bays.”

Well, that was a nice read.
But I was looking for something more than that!! Anyway, it was fun.

I have to say that I loved Oscar Wilde "the novelist" more than Oscar Wilde "the poet"!!

I'd like to quote some of my favorite lines:

“Could the passionate past that is fled
Call back its dead,
Could we live it all over again,
Were it worth the pain!

On your hand as it waved adieu
There were veins of blue;
In your voice as it said good-bye
Was a petulant cry,
'You have only wasted your life.
(Ah, that was the knife!)
When I rushed through the garden gate
It was all too late.

Could we live it over again,
Were it worth the pain,
Could the passionate past that is fled
Call back its dead!

Well, if my heart must break,
Dear love, for your sake,
It will break in music, I know,
Poets' hearts break so.

But strange that I was not told
That the brain can hold
In a tiny ivory cell
God's heaven and hell.”
