The Buried City, by George Sylvester Viereck

Lost was Solomon's purple show

Complete Poem

To hold against my heart,
My spirit to be taught of you
With west winds blowing,

Weep thy girlish tears!
April, that mine ears

Shall now my joyful temples bind;
No monarch but would give his crown
His arms might do what this has done.

It was my Heaven's extremest sphere,

Complete Poem


May, by Edward Thurlow, Lord Thurlow



MAY! queen of blossoms,
And fulfilling flowers,
With what pretty music
Shall we charm the hours?
