The Lesser Children, by Ridgely Torrence



A Threnody at the Hunting Season

In the middle of August when the southwest wind
Blows after sunset through the leisuring air,
And on the sky nightly the mythic hind
Leads down the sullen dog star to his lair,

Complete Poem


The Desert, by Antonio Hernandez



The desert is a place of blistering, wounding heat, my friend,
Where mean, obnoxious creatures guard their lives,
and here I live while running on the heels
of my sad prey, surviving by the hunt.

Look on, my love- I am your love, look on!

Complete Poem

Now that the spring is here,
When mocking-birds are praising
The fresh, the blossomy year?

The whipping sheet, the dashing spray,
I heard, with notes of joy and wail,

Jenny kiss'd Me, by Leigh Hunt



JENNY kiss'd me when we met,
Jumping from the chair she sat in;
Time, you thief, who love to get
Sweets into your list, put that in!

Of mountain winds on rugged pathless heights:

Complete Poem


Chavez, by Mildred McNeal Sweeney



So hath he fallen, the Endymion of the air,
And so lies down in slumber lapped for aye.
Diana, passing, found his youth too fair,

She swung her golden moon before his eyes --

Complete Poem


His Books, by Robert Southey



MY days among the Dead are past;
Around me I behold,
Where'er these casual eyes are cast,
The mighty minds of old:
My never-failing friends are they,

Complete Poem


Immortality, by John Liddell Kelly



At twenty-five I cast my horoscope,
And saw a future with all good things rife --
A firm assurance of eternal life
In worlds beyond, and in this world the hope
Of deathless fame. But now my sun doth slope

Complete Poem


Ireland, by Dora Sigerson



'TWAS the dream of a God,
And the mould of His hand,
That you shook 'neath His stroke,
That you trembled and broke
To this beautiful land.

Complete Poem


War, by Jennifer Zlomke



Threat of a war
But only of heart
The truth of the soul
Blessing the mark
Swords are drawn
