A Shropshire Lad
First edition (variant "A" of the spine label). See Carter, Sparrow and White 2. Presentation copy, inscribed by the poet on the front free endpaper: "A.E. Housman to M.J. Jackson." Lower corners and edges of board covers chipped; general soiling and wear, otherwise in good state. From the collection of Frederick B. Adams, Jr. with his bookplate (designed by Rockwell Kent). In a half morocco slipcase. Housman first met Moses John Jackson at Oxford in 1877. The author later called him "my greatest friend" and described him to Laurence Housman as "the man who had more influence on my life than anyone else". Henry Maas, in his edition of Housman's letters, notes that the author "worshipped" Jackson. Jackson, who married in 1889, and Housman were the subjects of Tom Stoppard's 1998 play "The Invention of Love". John Carter, in the catalogue for a centenary exhibition of Housman held at University College, London, notes: "In later years AEH complied with a fair number of requests for his signature in copies of the first edition; but the original presentation copies, even to his brothers and sisters and to such old friends as A.W. Pollard, were despatched with a printed slip by the publisher. Only two exceptions are known to the compiler: one inscribed to Moses Jackson, now in the collection of Frederick B. Adams, Jr. . . . the other, until recently in the family of AEH's sister, Mrs. E.W. Symons . . . ." In "The Book Collector" (Spring 1962, p. 84) Carter announced that a third example had been traced with an inscription to Mrs. Wise. A fourth example, with an inscription to John Maycock, is in the Seymour Adelman collection at Bryn Mawr College and was exhibited in the 1986 exhibition, "The Name and Nature of A.E. Housman".

82. A. E. Housman - On The Idle Hill Of Summer Excerpt Provided By ALS International
ae housman on the idle hill of summer excerpt provided by ALS International.
on the idle hill of summer
by A.E. Housman (1859-1936) On the idle hill of summer,
Sleepy with the flow of streams,
Far I hear the steady drummer
Drumming like a noise in dreams. Far and near and low and louder
On the roads of earth go by,
Dear to friends and food for powder,
Soldiers marching, all to die. East and west on fields forgotten
Bleach the bones of comrades slain,
Lovely lads and dead and rotten;
None that go return again. Far the calling bugles hollo,
High the screaming fife replies, Gay the files of scarlet follow: Woman bore me, I will rise.

Last Poems
A. E. Housman
Produced by A. P. Saulters
By A. E. Housman
I publish these poems, few though they are, because it is not likely
that I shall ever be impelled to write much more. I can no longer
expect to be revisited by the continuous excitement under which in
the early months of 1895 I wrote the greater part of my first book,
nor indeed could I well sustain it if it came; and it is best that what
I have written should be printed while I am here to see it through the press and control its spelling and punctuation. About a quarter of this matter belongs to the April of the present year, but most of it to dates between 1895 and 1910. September 1922 /We'll to the weeds no more, The laurels are all cut, The bowers are bare of bay That once the Muses wore; The year draws in the day And soon will evening shut: The laurels all are cut, We'll to the woods no more. Oh we'll no more, no more To the leafy woods away, To the high wild woods of laurel And the bowers of bay no more./

A.E. Housman
When I was one-and-twenty I heard a wise man say, "Give crowns and pounds and guineas But not your heart away; Give pearls away and rubies But keep your fancy free." But I was one-and-twenty, No use to talk to me.
When I was one-and-twenty I heard him say again, "The heart out of the bosom Was never given in vain; 'Tis paid with sighs a plenty And sold for endless rue." And I am two-and-twenty, And oh, 'tis true, 'tis true.

A. E. Housman
This page contains selected poems of A. E. Housman. The following brief introduction consists of excerpts from an article on Housman by Tom Merrill:
Housman began writing poetry at age eight, while still at home under tutelage of a governess, and then won a few awards for poems he wrote at The Bomsgrove School, which he attended on scholarship for seven years before entering Oxford on scholarship at age eighteen. During his college years he wrote only three poems, not to resume poetry-writing until considerably later, at age thirty-five, after a ten year stint as a clerk at the Government Patent Office and a couple years after being appointed, in 1892, to fill the Latin Chair at the University of London. The ease and naturalness and perfect cadence of Housman’s poetry no doubt account for his enduring stature as one of the foremost lyric poets of the past century and a half.
From "More Poems"
If in that Syrian garden, ages slain, You sleep, and know not you are dead in vain, Nor even in dreams behold how dark and bright Ascends in smoke and fire by day and night The hate you died to quench and could but fan, Sleep well and see no morning, son of man. But if, the grave rent and the stone rolled by, At the right hand of majesty on high You sit, and sitting so remember yet Your tears, your agony and bloody sweat, Your cross and passion and the life you gave, Bow hither out of heaven and see and save. II
When Israel out of Egypt came Safe in the sea they trod; By day in cloud, by night in flame, Went on before them God. He brought them with a stretched out hand Dry-footed through the foam, Past sword and famine, rock and sand, Lust and rebellion, home. I never over Horeb heard The blast of advent blow; No fire-faced prophet brought me word Which way behoved me go. Ascended is the cloudy flame, The mount of thunder dumb; The tokens that to Israel came, To me they have not come. I see the country far away Where I shall never stand; The heart goes where no footstep may Into the promised land. The realm I look upon and die Another man will own; He shall attain the heaven that I Perish and have not known. But I will go where they are hid That never were begot, To my inheritance amid The nation that is not.
