Love, by William Charles Wentworth



She loves me! From her own bliss-breathing lips
The live confession came, like rich perfume
From crimson petals bursting into bloom!
And still my heart at the remembrance skips
Like a young lion, and my tongue, too, trips

The Angel of Death sleeps beside me, by Jean Jones



At night, her black hair, and dark eyes
Stare at me like photographs I have
Hanging from the wall, she is a skull
Grinning constantly at me, she is smiling
And her eyes flash every time she stares at me

Complete Poem


The Rival, by James Whitcomb Riley



I so loved once, when Death came by I hid
Away my face,
And all my sweetheart's tresses she undid
To make my hiding-place.

The dread shade passed me thus unheeding; and

Renouncement, by Alice Meynell



I MUST not think of thee; and, tired yet strong,
I shun the love that lurks in all delight--
The love of thee--and in the blue heaven's height,
And in the dearest passage of a song.
Oh, just beyond the sweetest thoughts that throng

`The Love in her Eyes lay Sleeping', by William Forster



The love in her eyes lay sleeping,
As stars that unconscious shine,
Till, under the pink lids peeping,
I wakened it up with mine;
And we pledged our troth to a brimming oath

Complete Poem


The Dreamer, by Nicholas Vachel Lindsay

In your Bubble-Crown ascending?
Your chariot will melt to mist,
Your crown will have an ending.~"

After Sunset, by Grace Hazard Conkling



I have an understanding with the hills
At evening when the slanted radiance fills
Their hollows, and the great winds let them be,
And they are quiet and look down at me.
Oh, then I see the patience in their eyes

Complete Poem


Genius Loci, by Margaret L. Woods



PEACE, Shepherd, peace! What boots it singing on?
Since long ago grace-giving Phoebus died,
And all the train that loved the stream-bright side
Of the poetic mount with him are gone
Beyond the shores of Styx and Acheron,

Here is the Place where Loveliness keeps House, by Madison Cawein



Here is the place where Loveliness keeps house,
Between the river and the wooded hills,
Within a valley where the Springtime spills
Her firstling wind-flowers under blossoming boughs:
Where Summer sits braiding her warm, white brows

Complete Poem


Prayer for Indifference, by Fanny Greville



I ASK no kind return of love,
No tempting charm to please;
Far from the heart those gifts remove,
That sighs for peace and ease.

Nor peace nor ease the heart can know,

Complete Poem


Meeting, by George Crabbe



MY Damon was the first to wake
The gentle flame that cannot die;
My Damon is the last to take
The faithful bosom's softest sigh:
The life between is nothing worth,

Complete Poem


Look Up, by Andrew Murray



One sure way to happiness is to get your mind on track,
And to help in doing this see the white spot in the black,
Our shadows will always be with us, this i know is true,
But to focus on them only makes it worse for you.

When you put stuff in the trash, you never go back to with it play,
