Edward Thomas

I Built Myself a House of Glass

Philip Edward Thomas was an Anglo-Welsh poet and essayist.

I built myself a house of glass:
It took my years to make it:
And I was proud. But now, alas!
Would God someone would break it.

But it looks too magnificent.
No neighbour casts a stone
From where he dwells, in tenement
Or palace of glass, alone.
