The Evening Darkens Over

                                           ----  BY ROBERT BRIDGES

The evening darkens over

After a day so bright

The wind capt waves discover

That wild will be the night.

There’s sound of distant thunder.

 

The latest sea-birds hover

Along the cliff’s sheer height;

As in the memory wander

Last flutterings of delight,

White wings lost on the white.

 

There’s not a ship in sight;

And as the sun goes under

Thick clouds conspire to cover

The moon that should rise yonder.

Thou art alone, fond lover.

 

*********

(2.)

I Love all Beauteous Things

                                         ----  BY ROBERT BRIDGES

I love all beauteous things,

I seek and adore them;

God hath no better praise,

And man in his hasty days

Is honoured for them.

 

I too will something make

And joy in the making;

Altho’ to-morrow it seem

Like the empty words of a dream

Remembered on waking.

 

**********

(3.)

To Catullus

              -----   BY ROBERT BRIDGES

 

Would that you were alive today, Catullus!

Truth ’tis, there is a filthy skunk amongst us,

A rank musk-idiot, the filthiest skunk,

Of no least sorry use on earth, but only

Fit in fancy to justify the outlay

Of your most horrible vocabulary.

 

My Muse, all innocent as Eve in Eden,

Would yet wear any skins of old pollution

Rather than celebrate the name detested.

Ev’n now might he rejoice at our attention,

Guess'd he this little ode were aiming at him.

 

O! were you but alive again, Catullus!

 

For see, not one among the bards of our time

With their flimsy tackle was out to strike him;

Not those two pretty Laureates of England,

Not Alfred Tennyson nor Alfred Austin.

 

**********

(4.)

London Snow

                  ----   BY ROBERT BRIDGES

When men were all asleep the snow came flying,

In large white flakes falling on the city brown,

Stealthily and perpetually settling and loosely lying,

      Hushing the latest traffic of the drowsy town;

Deadening, muffling, stifling its murmurs failing;

Lazily and incessantly floating down and down:

      Silently sifting and veiling road, roof and railing;

Hiding difference, making unevenness even,

Into angles and crevices softly drifting and sailing.

      All night it fell, and when full inches seven

It lay in the depth of its uncompacted lightness,

The clouds blew off from a high and frosty heaven;

      And all woke earlier for the unaccustomed brightness

Of the winter dawning, the strange unheavenly glare:

The eye marvelled—marvelled at the dazzling whiteness;

      The ear hearkened to the stillness of the solemn air;

No sound of wheel rumbling nor of foot falling,

And the busy morning cries came thin and spare.

      Then boys I heard, as they went to school, calling,

They gathered up the crystal manna to freeze

Their tongues with tasting, their hands with snowballing;

      Or rioted in a drift, plunging up to the knees;

Or peering up from under the white-mossed wonder,

‘O look at the trees!’ they cried, ‘O look at the trees!’

      With lessened load a few carts creak and blunder,

Following along the white deserted way,

A country company long dispersed asunder:

      When now already the sun, in pale display

Standing by Paul’s high dome, spread forth below

His sparkling beams, and awoke the stir of the day.

      For now doors open, and war is waged with the snow;

And trains of sombre men, past tale of number,

Tread long brown paths, as toward their toil they go:

      But even for them awhile no cares encumber

Their minds diverted; the daily word is unspoken,

The daily thoughts of labour and sorrow slumber

At the sight of the beauty that greets them, for the charm they have broken

Robert Bridges

1844–1930

Side headshot of poet Robert Bridges.

Unknown author, public domain

A Victorian who, by choice, remained apart from the aesthetic movements of his day, Robert Bridges was a classicist. His experimentation with 18th-century classical forms culminated in The Testament of Beauty, generally acknowledged as his masterpiece. He succeeded Alfred Austin as Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom in 1913 and was active in the Society for Pure English, which was founded largely through his efforts. He had an important friendship and correspondence with Gerard Manley Hopkins; his edition of Hopkins's poems is considered a major contribution to English literature.

 

Bridges spent his early childhood in a house overlooking the anchoring ground of the British fleet in Walmer, Kent, England. His father's death in 1853 and his mother's remarriage a year later precipitated a move to Rochdale, where his stepfather was the vicar. Bridges attended Eton College from 1854 to 1863, where he met the poet Digby Mackworth Dolben and Lionel Muirhead, a lifelong friend. His acquaintance with Hopkins began at Corpus Christi College. Bridges had at one point intended to enter the religious life in the Church of England, but instead chose to become a physician and began his study of medicine at St. Bartholomew's Hospital in 1869. He received his degree in 1874 and worked at St. Bartholomew's and other hospitals until 1882, when he retired from practice after a bout with pneumonia and chose to devote himself to literature.

 

After his illness and a trip to Italy with Muirhead, Bridges moved with his mother to Yattendon in Berkshire, where he met and married Monica Waterhouse, daughter of the famous architect Alfred A. Waterhouse. Their children included the poet Elizabeth Daryush. It was during his residence in Yattendon, from 1882 to 1904, that Bridges wrote most of his best-known lyrics as well as eight plays and two masques, all in verse. In 1902 Bridges' wife Monica and daughter Margaret became seriously ill, and Bridges decided to move from Yattendon to a healthier climate. The family lived in several temporary homes, spent a year in Switzerland, and finally settled again in England at Chilswell House, which Bridges had designed and which was built on Boar's Hill overlooking Oxford University. Bridges lived there until his death in 1930.

 

The events of the first World War, including the wounding of his son, Edward, had a sobering effect on Bridges' poetry. He composed fiercely patriotic poems and letters, and in 1915 edited a volume of prose and poetry, The Spirit of Man, intended to appeal to readers living in war times. Bridges cofounded the Society for Pure English (SPE) in 1913; the group's intention was to establish "a sounder ideal of the purity of our language." Its work was interrupted by the war, but resumed in 1919 and continued until 1948, 18 years after Bridges' death. His work for the SPE led to Bridges' only trip to the United States in 1924, during which he increased interest in the group among American scholars.

 

Bridges began a long philosophical poem entitled The Testament of Beauty on Christmas Day, 1924, with 14 lines of what he referred to as "loose Alexandrines." He set the piece aside until 1926, when the death of his daughter Margaret prompted him to resume work as a way to ease his grief. The Testament of Beauty was published in October 1929, one day after his 85th birthday and six months before his death.

Robert Seymour Bridges OM (23 October 1844 – 21 April 1930) was an English poet who was Poet Laureate from 1913 to 1930. A doctor by training, he achieved literary fame only late in life. His poems reflect a deep Christian faith, and he is the author of many well-known hymns. It was through Bridges' efforts that Gerard Manley Hopkins achieved posthumous fame.

 

"The Evening Darkens Over"

 

The evening darkens over

After a day so bright,

The windcapt waves discover

That wild will be the night.

There's sound of distant thunder.

 

The latest sea-birds hover

Along the cliff's sheer height;

As in the memory wander

Last flutterings of delight,

White wings lost on the white.

 

There's not a ship in sight;

And as the sun goes under,

Thick clouds conspire to cover

The moon that should rise yonder.

Thou art alone, fond lover.

 

Bridges was born at Walmer, Kent, in England, the son of John Thomas Bridges (died 1853) and his wife Harriett Elizabeth, daughter of the Rev. Sir Robert Affleck, 4th Baronet. He was the fourth son and eighth child. After his father's death his mother married again, in 1854, to John Edward Nassau Molesworth, vicar of Rochdale, and the family moved there.[1]

 

Bridges was educated at Eton College and Corpus Christi College, Oxford.[2] He went on to study medicine in London at St Bartholomew's Hospital, intending to practise until the age of forty and then retire to write poetry. He practised as a casualty physician at his teaching hospital (where he made a series of highly critical remarks about the Victorian medical establishment) and subsequently as a full physician to the Great (later Royal) Northern Hospital. He was also a physician to the Hospital for Sick Children.

 

Lung disease forced Bridges to retire in 1882, and from that point on he devoted himself to writing and literary research. However, Bridges' literary work started long before his retirement, his first collection of poems having been published in 1873. In 1884 he married Mary Monica Waterhouse, daughter of the architect Alfred Waterhouse R.A., and spent the rest of his life in rural seclusion, first at Yattendon, then at Boars Hill, Berkshire (close to Oxford), where he died.

 

He was elected to the Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians of London in 1900. He was appointed Poet Laureate in 1913, the only medical graduate to have held the office.

 

He was the father of poet Elizabeth Daryush and of the cabinet secretary Edward Bridges.

Literary work

As a poet Bridges stands rather apart from the current of modern English verse, but his work has had great influence in a select circle, by its restraint, purity, precision and delicacy yet strength of expression. It embodies a distinct theory of prosody. Bridges' faith underpinned much of his work.[3]

 

In the book Milton's Prosody, he took an empirical approach to examining Milton's use of blank verse, and developed the controversial theory that Milton's practice was essentially syllabic. He considered free verse to be too limiting, and explained his position in the essay "Humdrum and Harum-Scarum". His own efforts to "free" verse resulted in the poems he called "Neo-Miltonic Syllabics", which were collected in New Verse (1925). The metre of these poems was based on syllables rather than accents, and he used the principle again in the long philosophical poem The Testament of Beauty (1929), for which he was appointed to the Order of Merit in that year.[4] His best-known poems, however, are to be found in the two earlier volumes of Shorter Poems (1890, 1894). He also wrote verse plays, with limited success, and literary criticism, including a study of the work of John Keats.

 

"Melancholia"

The sickness of desire, that in dark days

Looks on the imagination of despair,

Forgetteth man, and stinteth God his praise;

Nor but in sleep findeth a cure for care.

Incertainty that once gave scope to dream

Of laughing enterprise and glory untold,

Is now a blackness that no stars redeem,

A wall of terror in a night of cold.

 

Fool! thou that hast impossibly desired

And now impatiently despairest, see

How nought is changed: Joy's wisdom is attired

Splended for others' eyes if not for thee:

Not love or beauty or youth from earth is fled:

If they delite thee not, 'tis thou art dead.

 

Bridges' poetry was privately printed in the first instance, and was slow in making its way beyond a comparatively small circle of his admirers. His best work is to be found in his Shorter Poems (1890), and a complete edition (to date) of his Poetical Works (6 vols.) was published in 1898–1905.

 

Despite being made poet laureate in 1913, Bridges was never a very well-known poet and only achieved his great popularity shortly before his death with The Testament of Beauty. However, his verse evoked response in many great British composers of the time. Among those to set his poems to music were Hubert Parry, Gustav Holst and later Gerald Finzi.[5]

 

During the First World War, Bridges joined the group of writers assembled by Charles Masterman as part of Britain's War Propaganda Bureau at Wellington House.[6]

 

At Oxford, Bridges befriended Gerard Manley Hopkins, who is now considered a superior poet but who owes his present fame to Bridges' efforts in arranging the posthumous publication (1918) of his verse.

 

Bridges received advice from the young phonetician David Abercrombie on the reformed spelling system he was devising for the publication of his collected essays (later published in seven volumes by Oxford University Press, with the help of the distinguished typographer Stanley Morison, who designed the new letters). Thus Robert Bridges contributed to phonetics and he was also a founder member of the Society for Pure English.[7]

 

Hymnody

Bridges made an important contribution to hymnody with the publication in 1899 of his Yattendon Hymnal, which he created specifically for musical reasons. This collection of hymns, although not a financial success, became a bridge between the Victorian hymnody of the last half of the 19th century and the modern hymnody of the early 20th century.

 

Bridges wrote and also translated historic hymns, and many of these were included in Songs of Syon (1904) and the later English Hymnal (1906). Several of Bridges' hymns and translations are still in use today:

 

"Thee will I love, my God and King"

"Happy are they that love God"

"Rejoice, O land, in God thy might"

The Baptist Hymn Book, University Press, Oxford 1962

"Ah, Holy Jesus" (Johann Heermann, 1630)

"All my hope on God is founded" (Joachim Neander, c. 1680)

"Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" (Martin Jahn, 1661)

"O Gladsome Light" (Phos Hilaron)

"O Sacred Head, sore wounded" (Paulus Gerhardt, 1656)

"O Splendour of God's Glory Bright" (Ambrose, 4th century)

"When morning gilds the skies" (stanza 3; Katholisches Gesangbuch, 1744)

My Two Tribute Poems

(1.)

Pity, We Keep Much Of Our Lives Deeply Hidden

 

What can anybody truly know of me, real me

The truth that we keep hidden in heart's secret place

Beautiful flower gardens we just cannot grow

The sad aching memories we cannot erase

Treasured delight rejoicing in falling snow?

 

Pity, we keep much of our lives deeply hidden.

Much of it, things we were taught to be forbidden.

 

What can anybody truly know of me, my ink

Constant worries we poets always fret over

Will this deep, heartfelt offering be accepted

Could I much better describe that field of clover

Did magic fly forth or was it intercepted?

 

Pity, we keep much of our lives deeply hidden.

Much of it, things we were taught to be forbidden.

 

What can anybody truly know of me,  my verse

That my youth was wild and so full of sad mistakes

That Love so often stabbed an innocent heart

Woe-some fact, that I rarely ever hit the brakes

Or the many times my life was blasted apart?

 

Pity, we keep much of our lives deeply hidden.

Much of it, things we were taught to be forbidden.

 

What can anybody truly know of me, my mind

Can they feel the oft  intense depths of poems thus cast

Or with intuition, cipher unwritten words

Know I truly seek to ink poetry that lasts

Or hear singing from life's invisible songbirds?

 

Pity, we keep much of our lives deeply hidden.

Much of it, things we were taught to be forbidden.

 

What can anybody truly know of me, my heart

The magnificent times it felt true love was found

Romance that cheered and soothed an aching soul

Or will they come to see that by chains I am bound

And my all, scarred by pains from life's heavy toll?

 

Pity, we keep much of our lives deeply hidden.

Much of it, things we were taught to be forbidden.

Robert J. Lindley,

Rhyme,

( Born from life that was in wild-youth carelessly lived )

Note:

Can one present anything but heart's truest truth???

And still be a honorable and true poet???

**********

(2.)

Thoughts, Back When I Left Childhood In The Ancient Dust

 

Decades ago I stepped forth leaving childhood behind

Right into a world wherein for survival fight is a must

Leading onto pathetic pathways were the end is a bind

Like a bright shiny penny deep coated with green rust

But as happens, somehow that first couple decades I lived on

With those hidden cancers firmly entrenched in flesh and bone!

 

Well golly, you may say, same bull-hockey exists for us all.

And in innocent blindness, beg we for that promised fall!

 

I feel that life and this evil world 'oft promises too much

Hold on, perhaps truth is my jaded past sorely interferes

If greater wisdom was ever gained I would not think such

But that my sad-cast summation is laced with epic fears

My deep scars and forever aches this life forever hold firm

And my desperate disease tis born from that unholy germ!

 

Well golly, you may say, same bull-hockey exists for us all.

And in innocent blindness, beg we for that promised fall!

 

My friends, 'tis not that I cry my woes in a false foolish sense

As my great blindness may just be a heart that accepts not Fate

That I should perhaps wash my old brain repeatedly and then rinse

For built up anger and loss -too oft leads to staggering hate

And I splash poetic ink, doing so out of blinded rage

While I foolishly bemoan my lot and my advancing age!

 

Well golly, you may say, same bull-hockey exists for us all.

And in innocent blindness, beg we for that promised fall!

Robert J. Lindley,

Rhyme,

( Born from life that was in wild-youth carelessly lived )

I hear on high his roaring airplanes, and idly raising my head see them there; like a migratory flock of birds that rustle southward from the cold fall of the year in order’d phalanx—so the thin-rankt squadrons ply, til sound and sight failing me they are lost in the clouds.” Bridges wrote this after the loss of his daughter and I found it so moving.

Excerpt from The testament of beauty.“Birds are of all animals the nearest to men for that they take delight in both music and dance, and gracefully schooling leisure to enliven life wer the earlier artists: moreover in their airy flight (which in its swiftness symboleth man’s soaring thought) they hav no rival but man, and easily surpass in their free voyaging his most desperate daring, altho’ he hath fed and sped his ocean-ships with fire; and now, disturbing me as I write, Contd.

My friend, you chose a most poignant and very great example of te writing style, talent and beauty of Bridges' truly magnificent poetry. And even when writing of sadness, sorrow and /or death he pen found few -if any - equals during his time.. I had read Bridges many decades ago and had forgotten so much. Creating this blog reacquainted me with the greatness of his lifelong passion of poetry and gifting of that talent to this ever so needy world. Thank you and God bless. A true delight to read your wonderful comment..

Thank you my dear friend. (1.) Bridges--" What is Beauty? saith my sufferings then.—I answer the lover and poet in my loose alexandrines: Beauty is the highest of all these occult influences, the quality of appearances that thru’ the sense wakeneth spiritual emotion in the mind of man: And Art, as it createth new forms of beauty, awakeneth new ideas that advance the spirit in the life of Reason to the wisdom of God.

Thank you my friend. Ihave to spend that much time in order to be able to write the tribute poems honoring the chosen poet. As an added plus, the research gives me greater insight and appreciation of the poet as not just a poet/writer but as an individual that gave so much to this world. To me poets are the truest givers! God bless you my very talented friend. As your own gifts serve that very same high caling!

Robert Bridges, is the most modern poet that I have both blogged about and written tribute poems to. His poetry to me rings true and has that fine quality that I look for in poetry. I guess my thinking may be old-fashioned and out of sync with the modern flow , but it stays true to the foundation of poetry.

If a dear poet friend had not mentioed Robert Bridges reently, I'd likely not remembered and gotten around to tackling the job on a tribute. As this was quite hard to do. Not just all the research and reading of his poems but more so my writing my tribute poems.

I have had Bridges on my list to do for about 3 years now. Finally got around to putting in the effort and actually completing the task. Due to the time factor this blog is unedited...
