This vintage book contains the complete poetical works of Francis Thompson. They include: “Poems On Children”, “Daisy”, “The Poppy”, “To Monica Thought Dying”, “The Making Of Viola”, “To My Godchild”, “To Olivia”, “Little Jesus”, “Sister Songs”, “Love In Dian’s Lap”, “Proemion”, etc. Francis Thompson (1859–1907) was an English mystic and poet. Thompson went to medical school when he was 18, but left home at the age of 26 to pursue a life of writing. He was homeless for three years, becoming an opium addict and supporting himself through whatever means available. A married couple read his poetry and took him into their home in 1888, and in 1893 he published his first book, “Poems”. A fantastic collection of poems by a true master of the form. This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with a chapter from Benjamin Franklin Fisher’s “Francis Thompson, Essays” (1917).
