What is this poem?

English dude.

Forget when, although pre-20th Century.

Anyway, dude is riding to see his lover. He picks up his pace because it suddenly occurs to him that she could be dead. Or dying. I forget. That's about it.

Anyone know what the fuck I'm thinking of? It's driving me nuts.

I think I gave you all the clues I can.

I'm sure I read it in high school. A short poem.

Not Keats. This seemed lighter. A Cavalier poet?

Maybe I dreamed it.

If I remember rightly he just goes back to the bunks and his heart just gives out and dies. Man, that was just awful.

Indeed.

The part towards the end where he is sent along with all the Poles that were available to a waiting area where ten or more dead were taken out every morning? horror. the way he describes how people would die solely from being stepped on by people trying to make their way to the shit/piss bucket? That theer were several dozen men in a room 6 x 8 meters? how he crushed a man's face in, killing him in the process, purely by accident? fuck.

dammit

i was hoping for some clues on foot and rhythm and maybe some turns of phrase or imagery to help pin down

the subject matter sounded vaguely preraphaelite to me-- you know, old myths and legends and what not. some sort of lancelot shit.

so i though rossetti and took a cursory look but didn't look like it.

i've never read the cavaliers. anyway im now resorting to brute force---google searches, etc. pathetic!

if it was a dream you should write it. poems that come from dreams are the best. just say no to visitors.

The description's too vague to say for sure but it sounds something from Tennyson's Idylls of the King.

I don't know much about poetry, but I was thinking Keats as well. But it's not Keats, so way am I saying anything?

Anyway, I would need way more information to even Google this, but of the pre-20th century poems I know, I wonder...

Could it be "Porphyria's Lover?"

But that's a gargantuan freaking cycle of Arthurian legend! It's like 20 poems. Which one do you think it might be specifically? I remember the one about the jealousy of Geraint. That one has some traveling and some hemming and hawing and fear of death and whatnot, but it's not a perfect fit by any means.

Goddammit this is infuriating.

I'm really not trying to fuck with anyone.

I have a friend who gets very anxious whenever I don't return a call/text right away. She assumes I've died.

This brought up a vague memory of a poem I read a long time ago. I tried searching through books, then google, then asked here.

It's no big deal. No one panic. Enjoy your day.

FOUND IT!

I'm an idiot.

Strange fits of passion have I known. Wordsworth.


My horse moved on; hoof after hoof
He raised, and never stopp’d:
When down behind the cottage roof,
At once, the bright moon dropp’d.

What fond and wayward thoughts will slide
Into a lover’s head!
‘O mercy!’ to myself I cried,
‘If Lucy should be dead!’

Keats was really close. I'll split the non-existent prize.

Between whom?

I totally said before we knew Keats was close that I thought of Keats. So... y'know... for your consideration and whatnot.

Bah, I'm borderline poetry illiterate, so whatever. Except with the classless Beat hearhens

I was going to say, if we all need more distractions (which I sure as hell do), this could be something we obsessively flip out over all the time!

But would it be 20-questions style, or more of this incidental business of someone trying to remember something and having next to no information about what it is? Eh?

20 questions nah, that's a goofy game

guess the poem--that's it

speaking of "close", and keats, my scattershot was so near, i was scanning coleridge last evening, and of course no luck

ps- because of the unwanted visitor who interrupted the dreamed poem (kubla khan)

(im crazy i know)
