A confession: I am fond of Victorian poetry. That being said (and in order to perhaps temper your dismay, delight, or indifference), let me make clear that this fondness excludes: (1) wide swathes of Tennyson, Browning, and Arnold; (2) lengthy dramatic poems set in mythic, Arthurian, exotic, or antique lands (alas! no Proserpinas, Pomonas, or Pans!); and (3) Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll.
So, what does that leave us with? Consider this:
Is Memory most of miseries miserable,
Or the one flower of ease in bitterest hell?
Below the surface-stream, shallow and light,
Of what we say we feel - below the stream,
As light, of what we think we feel - there flows
With noiseless current strong, obscure and deep,
The central stream of what we feel indeed.
And, finally, consider this:
The Metropolitan Underground Railway
Here were a goodly place wherein to die; --
Grown latterly to sudden change averse,
All violent contrasts fain avoid would I
On passing from this world into a worse.
"Memory" is by Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882), who is better known as a Pre-Raphaelite painter than as a poet. "Below the surface-stream" is by Matthew Arnold. (Although I said that my fondness excludes "wide swathes" of Tennyson, Browning, and Arnold - it does not exclude everything.) "The Metropolitan Underground Railway" is by William Watson (1858-1935). Despite a bit of slightly archaic diction in places, these poems seem to me to be, well, timeless - and not stereotypically "Victorian" as that term is commonly understood. I was surprised when I first came across them. They made me realize that there is more to "Victorian" England than meets the eye.
So, from time to time, I will treat you (or afflict you, as the case may be) with poems by the likes of William Allingham, Richard Watson Dixon, Edward Dowden, Coventry Patmore, William Renton, A. Mary F. Robinson, William Bell Scott, C. S. Calverley, John Leicester Warren, Arthur Hugh Clough, and Philip Bourke Marston.
Before I go, I will cave in and permit one "Proserpina" (by Dante Gabriel Rossetti):
