To The Pending Year To The Pending Year

To The Pending Year
Have I no weapon-word for thee--some message brief and fierce? (Have I fought out and done indeed the battle?) Is there no shot left, For all thy affectations, lisps, scorns, manifold silliness? Nor for myself--my own rebellious self in thee? Down, down, proud gorge!--though choking thee; Thy bearded throat and high-borne forehead to the gutter; Crouch low thy neck to eleemosynary gifts.(The end)Walt Whitman's poem: To The Pending Year...

Master Humphrey's Clock - Chapter VI - MASTER HUMPHREY, FROM HIS CLOCK-SIDE IN THE CHIMNEY CORNER
CHAPTER VI - MASTER HUMPHREY, FROM HIS CLOCK-SIDE IN THE CHIMNEY CORNERTWO or three evenings after the institution of Mr. Weller's Watch, I thought I heard, as I walked in the garden, the voice of Mr. Weller himself at no great distance; and stopping once or twice to listen more attentively, I found that the sounds proceeded from my housekeeper's little sitting-room, which is at the back of the house. I took no further notice of the circumstance at that time, but it formed the subject of a conversation... Long Stories - Post by : 63608 - Author : Charles Dickens - Read : 1778

To A Usurper To A Usurper

To A Usurper
Aha! a traitor in the camp, A rebel strangely bold,--A lisping, laughing, toddling scamp, Not more than four years old!To think that I, who've ruled alone So proudly in the past,Should be ejected from my throne By my own son at last!He trots his treason to and fro, As only babies can,And says he'll be his mamma's beau When he's a "gweat, big man"!You stingy boy! you've always had A share in mamma's heart;Would you begrudge your poor old dad The tiniest little part?That mamma, I regret to...

Before The Snow Before The Snow

Before The Snow
Autumn is gone: through the blue woodlands bare Shatters the rainy wind. A myriad leaves,Like birds that fly the mournful Northern air. Flutter away from the old forest's eaves.Autumn is gone: as yonder silent rill, Slow eddying o'er thick leaf-heaps lately shed,My spirit, as I walk, moves awed and still, By thronging fancies wild and wistful led.Autumn is gone: alas, how long ago The grapes were plucked, and garnered was the grain!How soon death settles on us, and the snow Wraps with its white...

Nobody Cometh To Woo Nobody Cometh To Woo

Nobody Cometh To Woo
On Martinmas eve the dogs did bark, And I opened the window to see,When every maiden went by with her spark But neer a one came to me.And O dear what will become of me? And O dear what shall I do,When nobody whispers to marry me-- Nobody cometh to woo?None's born for such troubles as I be: If the sun wakens first in the morn"Lazy hussy" my parents both call me, And I must abide by their scorn,For nobody cometh to marry me, Nobody cometh to woo,So here in distress must I tarry me-- What can...

Zira: In Captivity Zira: In Captivity

Zira: In Captivity
Love me a little, Lord, or let me go, I am so weary walking to and fro Through all your lonely halls that were so sweet Did they but echo to your coming feet. When by the flowered scrolls of lace-like stone Our women's windows--I am left alone, Across the yellow Desert, looking forth, I see the purple hills towards the north. Behind those jagged Mountains' lilac crest Once lay the captive bird's small rifled nest. There was my brother slain, my sister bound; His blood, her tears,...

Alfred Tennyson - Chapter VI - AFTER IN MEMORIAM
CHAPTER VI - AFTER IN MEMORIAMOn June 13 Tennyson married, at Shiplake, the object of his old, long-tried, and constant affection. The marriage was still "imprudent,"--eight years of then uncontested supremacy in English poetry had not brought a golden harvest. Mr Moxon appears to have supplied 300 pounds "in advance of royalties." The sum, so contemptible in the eyes of first-rate modern novelists, was a competence to Tennyson, added to his little pension and the epaves of his patrimony. "The peace...

Myth, Ritual, And Religion, Volume 1 - PREFACE TO NEW IMPRESSION
PREFACE TO NEW IMPRESSIONWhen this book first appeared (1886), the philological school of interpretation of religion and myth, being then still powerful in England, was criticised and opposed by the author. In Science, as on the Turkish throne of old, "Amurath to Amurath succeeds"; the philological theories of religion and myth have now yielded to anthropological methods. The centre of the anthropological position was the "ghost theory" of Mr. Herbert Spencer, the "Animistic" theory of Mr. E. R....

The Spirit Of Freedom Is Born Of The Mountains The Spirit Of Freedom Is Born Of The Mountains

The Spirit Of Freedom Is Born Of The Mountains
The spirit of freedom is born of the mountains,In gorge and in canon it hovers and dwells;Pervading the torrents and crystalline fountains, Which dash through the valleys and forest clad dells.The spirit of freedom, so firm and impliant, Is borne on the breeze, whose invisible wavesDescend from the mountain peaks, stern and defiant-- Created for freemen, but never for slaves.(The end)Alfred Castner King's poem: Spirit Of Freedom Is Born Of The Mountains...

Scotsmen have wandered far and wide From Moray Frith to Frith of Clyde, McDonald from his sea girt isle, And Campbell from his broad Argyle.
