Poet:  Walter Wingate

Poet Biography: 
Walter Wingate (1865 - 1918) was a Scottish Poet whose gentle humour is often used to introduce children to poetry. I remember myself reading his poems whilst still at primary school. For a fuller



Poem: 
Dull tenement and muddy street
And sober working day:
How came a dawn so rarely sweet
Above a world so grey?

No lurid threat of tempest there,
No far flung flaunt of red,
Compelled the weatherwise to stare
And shake a dubious head.

Dim misty purples, veined with gold,
Silver and pallid blue,
With grey and pearl - when all was told,
A meagre range of hue!

The grace of each detail:
Ah! Vain is many an artist's dream
But this one did not fail.

Before I was aware
I felt the spirit of dawn transfuse
My outlook everywhere.
