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


Untitled, by Archie Smith



I was just
making it
up,
making it up as I moved along,
streets of a gold city paved

Complete Poem


Song, by Margaret Widdemer



The Spring will come when the year turns,
As if no Winter had been,
But what shall I do with a locked heart
That lets no new year in?

The birds will go when the Fall goes,

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!
Say I'm weary, say I'm sad,

In the Old Theatre, Fiesole (April, 1887), by Thomas Hardy



I traced the Circus whose gray stones incline
Where Rome and dim Etruria interjoin,
Till came a child who showed an ancient coin
That bore the image of a Constantine.

She lightly passed; nor did she once opine

Complete Poem


Gratiana Dancing, by Richard Lovelace



SHE beat the happy pavement--
By such a star made firmament,
Which now no more the roof envies!
But swells up high, with Atlas even,
Bearing the brighter nobler heaven,

Complete Poem


Dark Rosaleen, by James Clarence Mangan



O MY Dark Rosaleen,
Do not sigh, do not weep!
The priests are on the ocean green,
They march along the deep.
There 's wine from the royal Pope,

Complete Poem


To Death, by Caroline Southey



COME not in terrors clad, to claim
An unresisting prey:
Come like an evening shadow, Death!
So stealthily, so silently!
And shut mine eyes, and steal my breath;

Complete Poem


Maritae Suae, by William Philpot



I

OF all the flowers rising now,
Thou only saw'st the head
Of that unopen'd drop of snow
I placed beside thy bed.

Complete Poem


Samela, by Robert Greene



LIKE to Diana in her summer weed,
Girt with a crimson robe of brightest dye,
Goes fair Samela.
Whiter than be the flocks that straggling feed
When wash'd by Arethusa faint they lie,

Complete Poem


A Girl's Grave, by Patrick Edward Quinn



"Aged 17, OF A BROKEN HEART, January 1st, 1841."

What story is here of broken love,
What idyllic sad romance,
What arrow fretted the silken dove
That met with such grim mischance?

Complete Poem


Colombia and Her Crew, by Anita Raye (Willis) Stonebreaker



We watched God's souls as they took flight,
Away from Earth, out of sight.
Their mission known right from the start,
Our hero's brave, gave from their hearts.

Far away from their homeland,
