At Her Window, by Frederick Locker-Lampson



BEATING Heart! we come again
Where my Love reposes;
This is Mabel's window-pane;
These are Mabel's roses.

Is she nested? Does she kneel

Complete Poem


The New Age, by Justina S. Nanes



The age of terror
Hope misplaced--like a set of keys
Trust evaporated--like water on a hot day
Faith overlooked--like a history notebook

The age of despondency

Complete Poem


Love and Life, by John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester



ALL my past life is mine no more;
The flying hours are gone,
Like transitory dreams given o'er,
Whose images are kept in store
By memory alone.

Complete Poem


Mockery, by Louis Untermeyer



God, I return to You on April days
When along country roads You walk with me,
And my faith blossoms like the earliest tree
That shames the bleak world with its yellow sprays --
My faith revives, when through a rosy haze

Complete Poem


You, by Ruth Guthrie Harding



Deep in the heart of me,
Nothing but You!
See through the art of me --
Deep in the heart of me
Find the best part of me,

Complete Poem


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,

"Grandmither, think not I forget", by Willa Sibert Cather



Grandmither, think not I forget, when I come back to town,
An' wander the old ways again, an' tread them up and down.
I never smell the clover bloom, nor see the swallows pass,
Wi'out I mind how good ye were unto a little lass;
I never hear the winter rain a-pelting all night through

Complete Poem


To a Wave, by Inez K. Hyland



Where were you yesterday? In Gulistan,
With roses and the frenzied nightingales?
Rather would I believe you shining ran
With peaceful floods, where the soft voice prevails
Of building doves in lordly trees set high,

Complete Poem


Invocation, by William Drummond, of Hawthornden



PHOEBUS, arise!
And paint the sable skies
With azure, white, and red;
Rouse Memnon's mother from her Tithon's bed,
That she thy career may with roses spread;

Complete Poem


Discipline, by George Herbert



THROW away Thy rod,
Throw away Thy wrath;
O my God,
Take the gentle path!

For my heart's desire

Complete Poem


A Rose, by Sir Richard Fanshawe



BLOWN in the morning, thou shalt fade ere noon.
What boots a life which in such haste forsakes thee?
Thou'rt wondrous frolic, being to die so soon,
And passing proud a little colour makes thee.
If thee thy brittle beauty so deceives,

Complete Poem


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
