[ The Seventh Cloud ] Album - Page 3

    Selected Poems and Prose 
   John Clare 

I am - yet what I am, none cares or knows; 
My friends forsake me like a memory lost: 
I am the self-consumer of my woes —  
They rise and vanish in oblivions host, 
Like shadows in love frenzied stifled throes 
And yet I am, and live — like vapours tost 
Into the nothingness of scorn and noise, 
Into the living sea of waking dreams, 
Where there is neither sense of life or joys, 
But the vast shipwreck of my lifes esteems; 
Even the dearest that I love best 
Are strange — nay, rather, stranger than the rest. 
I long for scenes where man hath never trod 
A place where woman never smiled or wept 
There to abide with my Creator God, 
And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept, 
Untroubling and untroubled where I lie 
The grass below, above, the vaulted sky.
