Howard Lovecraft

The Complete Poetry of H. P. Lovecraft

Like Poe, Lovecraft began writing significantly more poetry than fiction, and at one point considered himself primarily a poet. This is his (more of less) complete public domain poetry.

    To the Old Pagan Religion
    Olympian gods! How can I let ye go

    And pin my faith to this new Christian creed?

    Can I resign the deities I know

    For him who on a cross for man did bleed?

    How in my weakness can my hopes depend

    On one lone God, though mighty be his pow’r?

    Why can Jove’s host no more assistance lend,

    To soothe my pain, and cheer my troubled hour?

    Are there no Dryads on these wooded mounts

    O’er which I oft in desolation roam?

    Are there no Naiads in these crystal founts?

    Nor Nereids upon the Ocean foam?

    Fast spreads the new; the older faith declines.

    The name of Christ resounds upon the air.

    But my wrack’d soul in solitude repines

    And gives the Gods their last-receivèd pray’r.
