Jessie, by Thomas Edward Brown



WHEN Jessie comes with her soft breast,
And yields the golden keys,
Then is it as if God caress'd
Twin babes upon His knees--
Twin babes that, each to other press'd,

The Saga of the Descent, by Cullyn Ullrson



This poem was written regarding a true event in modern times in the Old Icelandic Saga style of the 10th C. It commemorates the completion of a promise made to my grandfather after his death earlier this year.

Bersarker mourns loss as kinsman is passing.
Hella is called through blot
A deal is made, an easy passing for sacrifice
A challenge is accepted.

Wind o' the Autumn, by Will. H. Ogilvie



I love you, wind o' the Autumn, that came from I know not where,
To lead me out of the toiling world to a ballroom fresh and fair,
Where the poplars tall and golden and the beeches rosy and red
Are setting to woodland partners and dancing the stars to bed!

Oh! say, wild wind o' the Autumn, may I dance this dance with you

Complete Poem


Virtue, by George Herbert



SWEET day, so cool, so calm, so bright!
The bridal of the earth and sky--
The dew shall weep thy fall to-night;
For thou must die.

Sweet rose, whose hue angry and brave

Complete Poem


In a Gondola, by Robert Browning



THE moth's kiss, first!
Kiss me as if you made me believe
You were not sure, this eve,
How my face, your flower, had pursed
Its petals up; so, here and there

Complete Poem


Joe Hill, by Alfred Hayes



I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night
Alive as you or me
Says I, But Joe, you're ten years dead
I never died, says he
I never died, says he

Complete Poem


The Rebel's Toast, by Joe Hill



If Freedom's road seems rough and hard,
And strewn with rocks and thorns,
Then put your wooden shoes on, pard,
And you won't hurt your corns.
To organize and teach, no doubt,

Complete Poem


Thoughts in a Garden, by Andrew Marvell



HOW vainly men themselves amaze
To win the palm, the oak, or bays,
And their uncessant labours see
Crown'd from some single herb or tree,
Whose short and narrow-verged shade

Complete Poem


Reunited, by Gilbert Parker



WHEN you and I have play'd the little hour,
Have seen the tall subaltern Life to Death
Yield up his sword; and, smiling, draw the breath,
The first long breath of freedom; when the flower
Of Recompense hath flutter'd to our feet,

Complete Poem


The Which's Ballad, by William Bell Scott



O, I hae come from far away,
From a warm land far away,
A southern land across the sea,
With sailor-lads about the mast,
Merry and canny, and kind to me.

The Land o' the Leal, by Carolina, Lady Nairne



I'M wearin' awa', John
Like snaw-wreaths in thaw, John,
I'm wearin' awa'
To the land o' the leal.
There 's nae sorrow there, John,

A Metal That Was Never Mine, by Ma.Francia Concepcion M. Jagong



You are the love I've been searching for so long
Everytime I see you,you're like music that heals my soul
You're a one-in-a-million book I'd like to read and understand
You're like the universe,to explore you is what I want

But you are like the cloud I cannot hug
