Night In May
The snowy clouds, soft sleeping lambkins, lie Along the dark blue meadows of the sky, And the bright stars, like golden daffodils, Are blooming thickly by. And Luna, gentle shepherdess, the while Keeps near her flock and guards it with her smile; I almost fancy I can hear her song Down to this shadowed stile. Lo! Zephyrus, fond lover, comes to woo; With airy step he hastes the pastures through,... Poems - Post by : bensonconsult - Date : June 2011 - Author : Charles Hamilton Musgrove - Read : 2523

And hail those muffled armaments-- Thy fettered vulture brood! Their sable wings are laureled and Their necks are ribboned gay, And silken folds their talons hide This kingly holiday.

Instruments Instruments

Instruments
Today we are the fruits of yesterday And what tomorrow shall of us demand,-- The helpless tools within the Master's hand To do His will and never say Him nay. He blends our souls with iron, fire or clay, He shapes our doom according as He planned The scheme of life, and who shall understand The why He gives, or why He takes away? Somewhere the universal loom shall... Poems - Post by : rjudkins - Date : June 2011 - Author : Charles Hamilton Musgrove - Read : 3161

The Passion Play The Passion Play

The Passion Play
I. Where falls the shadow of the Kofel cross Athwart the Alpine snows, the rose of faith Is blooming still in consecrated hearts, And holy men another cross have hewn Whereon the symboled Christ again shall die To cleanse the world of sin. Within the vale Where flows the Ammer like a trail of tears Upon the Holy Mother's face, I see The men and women, faithful to their vows, Breathing...

The Monastery The Monastery

The Monastery
Beyond the wall the passion flower is blooming, Strange hints of life along the winds are blown; Within, the cowled and silent men are kneeling Before an image on a cross of stone, And on their lifted faces, wan as death, I read this simple message of their faith: "The trail of flame is ashen, And pleasure's lees are gray,...

The Woman Answers The Woman Answers

The Woman Answers
What will I say when face to face with God My naked soul shall come, seared with the stain That men call sin? Why, God will understand; He knew my pitiful story long before My frail dust quickened with the breath of life; He knew the mystery of that day of days When, thrilled with virgin wonder, I should come Bearing the lily of my stainless love To plant upon the desert of desire....

The Gold Fields The Gold Fields

The Gold Fields
Here is a tale the North Wind sang to me: Hell hath set Mammon o'er a frozen land, Crowned him with gold, put gold into his hand, And men forsake their God to bow the knee Again unto this world-old deity Whose rule is wheresoe'er man's feet go forth, Whether they track the grim and icy North, Or Afric's scorching sweeps of sandy sea. About his throne they crawl... Poems - Post by : jenmary201 - Date : June 2011 - Author : Charles Hamilton Musgrove - Read : 2237

The Song Of The Dynamo
_I have been kissed by the Priestess of the Thin and Deadly Blood-- With the kiss that men call Lightning, and yet I did not die, For the kiss was a message from God; I felt it and understood, And I knew how He looked on the cosmic light and called it "Good"; I thrilled with a vibrant joy; I hummed with ecstasy._ Men hear me sing but they know not the source of my song; I hold them...

The Vow Forsworn The Vow Forsworn

The Vow Forsworn
Unweariedly he watches for the sign, The sign I promised from the farthest goal, My lover of a world no longer mine, My human lover with his human soul. Unweariedly he waits from day to day, Nor knows, as I know now, that when we meet, 'Twill be as dewdrop on the hawthorn spray,-- The ultimate of God at last complete. He still remembers that my eyes were blue,... Poems - Post by : webiz - Date : June 2011 - Author : Charles Hamilton Musgrove - Read : 2089
