Men of Harlan, by William Aspinwall Bradley



Here in the level country, where the creeks run straight and wide,
Six men upon their pacing nags may travel side by side.
But the mountain men of Harlan, you may tell them all the while,
When they pass through our village, for they ride in single file.
And the children, when they see them, stop their play and stand and cry,

Causeway Bay at Night, by Thobias A. Pereira



The full moon up in Cause-way Bay
Highlighting outline of hills around the Bay:
Outshining towers of lights of many hues,
And clearing the veil of eerie darkness of the night.

A magnificent view from "Rosedale on the park:

Praise of Women, by Robert Mannyng of Brunne



NO thyng ys to man so dere
As wommanys love in gode manere.

IF thou wilt ease thine heart
Of love and all its smart,
Then sleep, dear, sleep;
And not a sorrow
Hang any tear on your eyelashes;

A Jacobite's Epitaph, by Thomas Babington Macaulay, Lord Macaulay



TO my true king I offer'd free from stain
Courage and faith; vain faith, and courage vain.
For him I threw lands, honours, wealth, away,
And one dear hope, that was more prized than they.
For him I languish'd in a foreign clime,

Sonnets from the Portuguese i, by Elizabeth Barrett Browning



I THOUGHT once how Theocritus had sung
Of the sweet years, the dear and wish'd-for years,
Who each one in a gracious hand appears
To bear a gift for mortals old or young:
And, as I mused it in his antique tongue,

Complete Poem


A Night in Italy, by Edward Robert Bulwer Lytton, Earl of Lytton



SWEET are the rosy memories of the lips
That first kiss'd ours, albeit they kiss no more:
Sweet is the sight of sunset-sailing ships,
Altho' they leave us on a lonely shore:
Sweet are familiar songs, tho' Music dips

Euchenor Chorus, by Arthur Upson



Of old it went forth to Euchenor, pronounced of his sire --
Reluctant, impelled by the god's unescapable fire --
To choose for his doom or to perish at home of disease
Or be slain of his foes, among men, where Troy surges down to the seas.

Polyides, the soothsayer, spake it, inflamed by the god.

Autumn, by Jean Start Untermeyer



(For my Mother)

How memory cuts away the years,
And how clean the picture comes
Of autumn days, brisk and busy;
Charged with keen sunshine.

The Path that leads to Nowhere, by Corinne Roosevelt Robinson



There's a path that leads to Nowhere
In a meadow that I know,
Where an inland island rises
And the stream is still and slow;
There it wanders under willows

Complete Poem


The Wardens of the Seas, by Edwin James Brady



Like star points in the ether to guide a homing soul
Towards God's Eternal Haven; above the wash and roll,
Across and o'er the oceans, on all the coasts they stand
Tall seneschals of commerce, High Wardens of the Strand --
The white lights slowly turning

Complete Poem


Step, by John Metcalfe



Hey, you violet thing
Dance around your amber ways

Move sly and slither that step
Silky smooth silent saunter

My my you black cat
