Melbourne, by Patrick Moloney



O sweet Queen-city of the golden South,
Piercing the evening with thy star-lit spires,
Thou wert a witness when I kissed the mouth
Of her whose eyes outblazed the skyey fires.
I saw the parallels of thy long streets,

Complete Poem


My Cimmerian Closet, by William August Kobs



There's a place I go to
When the world isn't right,
When the black hounds of day
Start to put up a fight.

A place that's well hidden

Complete Poem

And after all -- and after all,
Our passionate prayers, and sighs, and tears,
Is life a reckless carnival?
And are they lost, our golden years?

A Lover's Lullaby, by George Gascoigne



SING lullaby, as women do,
Wherewith they bring their babes to rest;
And lullaby can I sing too,
As womanly as can the best.
With lullaby they still the child;

Valley Song, by Carl Sandburg



Your eyes and the valley are memories.
Your eyes fire and the valley a bowl.
It was here a moonrise crept over the timberline.
It was here we turned the coffee cups upside down.
And your eyes and the moon swept the valley.

The Silent Folk, by Charles Wharton Stork



Oh, praise me not the silent folk;

Like leafless, bird-abandoned oak

Ye morning-glories, ring in the gale your bells,
And with dew water the walk's dust for the burden-bearing ants:
Ye swinging spears of the larkspur, open your wells of gold
And pay your honey-tax to the hummingbird . . .

O now I see by the opening of blossoms,

I have a Rendezvous with Death, by Alan Seeger



I have a rendezvous with Death
At some disputed barricade,
When Spring comes back with rustling shade
And apple-blossoms fill the air --
I have a rendezvous with Death

To a Lady, by William Dunbar



SWEET rois of vertew and of gentilness,
Delytsum lily of everie lustynes,
Richest in bontie and in bewtie clear,
And everie vertew that is wenit dear,
Except onlie that ye are mercyless

A Contemplation upon Flowers, by Henry King, Bishop of Chichester



BRAVE flowers--that I could gallant it like you,
And be as little vain!
You come abroad, and make a harmless show,
And to your beds of earth again.
You are not proud: you know your birth:

The Unreturning, by Bliss Carman



The old eternal spring once more
Comes back the sad eternal way,
With tender rosy light before
The going-out of day.

The great white moon across my door

Aselleus, by Richard Thomas Cummings



Asmodaeus shed his smoldering reign,
