Happy Birthday, Stevie
Today in Hull, in Yorkshire, England, in 1902 Stevie Smith was born.
My Heart Was Full
My heart was full of softening showers,
I used to swing like this for hours,
I did not care for war or death,
I was glad to draw my breath.
In the Night
I longed for companionship rather,
But my companions I always wished farther.
And now in the desolate night
I think only of the people i should like to bite.
