Thomas Hood
#1
Thomas Hood

The man who cloaked his bitterness within
This winding-sheet of puns and pleasantries,
God never gave to look with common eyes
Upon a world of anguish an of sin:

His brother was the branded man of Lynn;
And there are woven with his jollities
The nameless and eternal tragedies
That render hope and hopelessness akin.

We laugh, and crown him; but anon we feel
A still chord sorrow-swept, - a weird unrest;
And thin dim shadows home to midnight steal,

As if the very ghost of mirth were dead –
As if the joys of time to dreams had fled,
Or sailed away with Ines to the West.
