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.

Complete Poem


Witness to Eerie Happenings, by Madan G. Gandhi



In flashes of explosion I see
a million billion crackers burst
in desolate dark of the sky.

The punctured sheen of space unfolds
on eternity's chequer board,

Complete Poem


Autumn, by Walter Savage Landor



MILD is the parting year, and sweet
The odour of the falling spray;
Life passes on more rudely fleet,
And balmless is its closing day.

I wait its close, I court its gloom,

Complete Poem


Ode, by Arthur William Edgar O'Shaughnessy



WE are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers,

Complete Poem


Earliest Spring, by William Dean Howells



TOSSING his mane of snows in wildest eddies and tangles,
Lion-like March cometh in, hoarse, with tempestuous breath,
Through all the moaning chimneys, and 'thwart all the hollows and
angles
Round the shuddering house, threating of winter and death.

Complete Poem


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

Complete Poem


Love, by Alexander Smith



THE fierce exulting worlds, the motes in rays,
The churlish thistles, scented briers,
The wind-swept bluebells on the sunny braes,
Down to the central fires,

Exist alike in Love. Love is a sea

Complete Poem


Old Amaze, by Mahlon Leonard Fisher



Mine eyes are filled today with old amaze
At mountains, and at meadows deftly strewn
With bits of the gay jewelry of June
And of her splendid vesture; and, agaze,
I stand where Spring her bright brocade of days

Complete Poem


Gordon's Grave, by Francis William Lauderdale Adams



All the heat and the glow and the hush
of the summer afternoon;
the scent of the sweet-briar bush
over bowing grass-blades and broom;

the birds that flit and pass;

Complete Poem


A True Love, by Nicholas Grimald



WHAT sweet relief the showers to thirsty plants we see,
What dear delight the blooms to bees, my true love is to me!
As fresh and lusty Ver foul Winter doth exceed--
As morning bright, with scarlet sky, doth pass the evening's weed--
As mellow pears above the crabs esteemed be--

Complete Poem


Youth and Age, by Samuel Taylor Coleridge



VERSE, a breeze 'mid blossoms straying,
Where Hope clung feeding, like a bee--
Both were mine! Life went a-maying
With Nature, Hope, and Poesy,
When I was young!

Complete Poem


Snow, by Sandy Kay Turmail



Snow
Crystal water falls
mesmerizing the eyes
enveloping the mind

Soon it's all around
