Rupert Brooke Quotes

A kiss makes the heart young again and wipes out the years.

Rupert Brooke

A pulse in the eternal mind, no less, gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given. Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day; and laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness, in hearts at peace, under an English heaven.

Rupert Brooke

These laid the world away; poured out the red Sweet wine of youth; gave up the years to be Of work and joy, and that unhoped serene, That men call age; and those who would have been, Their sons, they gave, their immortality.

Rupert Brooke

Oh! Death will find me, long before I tire Of watching you; and swing me suddenly Into the shade and loneliness and mire Of the last land! There, waiting patiently, One day, I think, I'll feel a cool wind blowing, See a slow light across the Stygian tide, And hear the Dead about me stir, unknowing, And tremble. And J shall know that you have died, And watch you, a broad-browed and smiling dream, Pass, light as ever, through the lightless host, Quietly ponder, start, and sway, and gleam Most individual and bewildering ghost! And turn, and toss your brown delightful head Amusedly, among the ancient Dead.

Rupert Brooke

If I should die think only this of me: That there's some corner of a foreign field That is for ever England.

Rupert Brooke

And in my flower-beds, I think, Smile the carnation and the pink.

Rupert Brooke

We are earths best, that learnt her lesson here, Life is our cry. We have kept the faith! And when we die, Alls over that is ours; and life burns on Through other lovers, other lips, Heart of my heart, heaven is now, is won!
