Sonnet Reversed

Written by: Rupert Brooke | Biography
 | Quotes (19) |
 Hand trembling towards hand; the amazing lights 
Of heart and eye. They stood on supreme heights. 

Ah, the delirious weeks of honeymoon! 
Soon they returned, and, after strange adventures, 
Settled at Balham by the end of June. 
Their money was in Can. Pacs. B. Debentures, 
And in Antofagastas. Still he went 
Cityward daily; still she did abide 
At home. And both were really quite content 
With work and social pleasures. Then they died. 
They left three children (besides George, who drank): 
The eldest Jane, who married Mr Bell, 
William, the head-clerk in the County Bank, 
And Henry, a stock-broker, doing well.
