T.E. Hume

 

Two poems by T.E. Hume:

1. “Autumn”

2. “Above the Dock”

 

 

Autumn

 

A touch of cold in the Autumn night—

I walked abroad,

And saw the ruddy moon lean over a hedge

Like a red-faced farmer.

I did not stop to speak, but nodded,

And round about were the wistful stars

With white faces like town children.

 

        T.E. Hume

 

 

 

Above the Dock

 

Above the quiet dock in midnight,

Tangled in the tall mast’s corded height,

Hangs the moon. What seemed so far away

Is but a child’s balloon, forgotten after play.

 

        T.E. Hulme
