Syringas Syringas

Syringas
The smallest flower beside my path, In loveliness of bloom, Some element of comfort hath To rid my heart of gloom; But these, of spotless purity, And fragrant as the rose, As sad a sight recall to me As time shall e'er disclose. Oh, there are pictures on the brain Sometimes by shadows made, Till dust is blent with dust again,... Poems - Post by : Kirbs - Date : November 2011 - Author : Hattie Howard - Read : 1022

The Sangamon River The Sangamon River

The Sangamon River
O sunny Sangamon! thy name to me, Soft-syllabled like some sweet melody, Familiar is since adolescent years As household phrases ringing in my ears; Its measured cadence sounding to and fro From the dim corridors of long ago. There was a time in happy days gone by, That rosy interval of youth, when I The scholar ardent early learned to trace Great tributaries to their starting place; And thine some prairie...

A Prisoner A Prisoner

A Prisoner
Where I can see him all day long And hear his wild, spontaneous song, Before my window in his cage, A blithe canary sits and swings, And circles round on golden wings; And startles all the vicinage When from his china tankard He takes a dainty drink...

Mount Vernon Mount Vernon

Mount Vernon
Subdued and sad, I trod the place Where he, the hero, lived and died; Where, long-entombed beneath the shade By willow bough and cypress made, The peaceful scene with verdure rife, He and the partner of his life, Beloved of every land and race, Are sleeping side by side. The summer solstice at its height Reflected from Potomac's tide A glare of light, and through... Poems - Post by : burtona - Date : November 2011 - Author : Hattie Howard - Read : 2465

'be Not Anxious' "be Not Anxious"

'be Not Anxious'
"Be careful for nothing," Phil. iv. 6. Revised version, "Be not anxious." Of all the precepts in the Book By word of inspiration given, That bear the import, tone, and look Of messages direct from heaven, From Revelation back to Genesis Is nothing needed half so much as this. Ah, well the great apostle spake In admonition wise and... Poems - Post by : greativity - Date : November 2011 - Author : Hattie Howard - Read : 1225

Mysterious Mysterious

Mysterious
The morning sun rose bright and fair Upon a lovely village where Prosperity abounded, And ceaseless hum of industry In lines of friendly rivalry From day to day resounded. Its shaded avenues were wide, And closely bordered either side With cottages or mansions, Or marked by blocks of masonry That might defy a century To loosen from their stanchions....

Christmas At Church Christmas At Church

Christmas At Church
'Twas drawing near the holiday, When piety and pity met In whisp'ring council, and agreed That Christmas time, in homes of need, Should be remembered in a way They never could forget. Then noble generosity Took youth and goodness by the hand, And planned a thousand charming... Poems - Post by : Easy_Money - Date : November 2011 - Author : Hattie Howard - Read : 3655

The Bell(e) Of Baltimore The Bell(e) Of Baltimore

The Bell(e) Of Baltimore
(One of the notable features of Baltimore is the big bell that hangs in the city hall tower, to strike the hour and sound the fire alarm. It is Called "Big Sam," and weighs 5,000 pounds) A million feet above the ground (For so it seemed in winding round), A million, and two more, The latter stiff and sore, While perspiration formed a part Of every reeking pore,...

The Charity Ball The Charity Ball

The Charity Ball
There was many a token of festal display, And reveling crowds who were never so gay, And, as it were Æolus charming the hours, An orchestra hidden by foliage and flowers; There were tapestries fit for the home of a queen, And mirrors that glistened in wonderful sheen; There was feasting and mirth in the banqueting-hall, For this was the annual Charity Ball. There were pompous civilians, in wealth who abide, Displaying their purses,... Poems - Post by : Ravens - Date : November 2011 - Author : Hattie Howard - Read : 3599

A Bit Of Gladness A Bit Of Gladness

A Bit Of Gladness
As I near my lonely cottage, At the close of weary day, There's a little bit of gladness Comes to meet me on the way: Dimpled, tanned, and petticoated, Innocent as angels are, Like a smiling, straying sunbeam Is my Stella--like a star. Soon a hand of tissue-softness Slips confidingly in mine, And with tender look appealing... Poems - Post by : recyclebiz - Date : November 2011 - Author : Hattie Howard - Read : 1904

Sheridan's Last Ride Sheridan's Last Ride

Sheridan's Last Ride
While Phoebus lent his hottest rays To signalize midsummer days, I stood in that far-famed enclosure By thousands visited, Where, in the stillness of reposure, Are grouped battalions dead. Where, round each simple burial stone, The grass for decades twain has grown,... Poems - Post by : 47046 - Date : November 2011 - Author : Hattie Howard - Read : 2299

Like Summer Like Summer

Like Summer
November? 'tis a summer's day! For tropic airs are blowing As soft as whispered roundelay From unseen lips that seem to say To feathered songsters going To sunnier, southern climes afar, "Stay where you are--stay where you are!" And other tokens glad as these Declare that Summer lingers: Round latent buds still hum the bees, Slow fades the green from forest trees...

The Woods The Woods

The Woods
I love the woods when the magic hand Of Spring, as if sweeping the keys Of a wornout instrument, touches the earth; When beauty and song in the gladness of birth Awaken the heart of the desolate land, And carol its rapture to every breeze. In summer's still solstice my steps are drawn To the shade of the forest trees; To revel with Pan in his secret haunts,...

Tobogganing Tobogganing

Tobogganing
Oh, the rare exhilaration, Oh, the novel delectation Of a ride down the slide! Packed like ice in zero weather, Pleasure-seekers close together, On a board as thin as wafer, Barely wider, scarcely safer, At the height of recreation Find a glorious inspiration, Ere the speedy termination In the snowy meadow wide, Sloping to the river's side....

Woman's Help Woman's Help

Woman's Help
Sometimes I long to write an ode And magnify his name, The man of honor, on the road To opulence and fame, On whom was never aid bestowed By any helpful dame. To all the world I fain would show That talent widely known, Rare eloquence, of burning glow To melt a heart of stone, That all his gifts, a dazzling...

On The Common On The Common

On The Common
We met on "Boston Common"-- Of course it was by chance-- A sudden, unexpected, But happy circumstance That gave the dull October day A beautiful, refulgent ray. Like wandering refugees from A city of renown, Impelled to reconnoiter This Massachusetts town, Each by a common object urged, Upon the park our paths converged. Good nature, bubbling over...

Revenge Revenge

Revenge
Beside my window day and night, Its tendrils reaching left and right, A morning glory grew; With blossoms covered, pink and white And deep, delicious blue. Its care became my daily thought, Who to the sweet diversion brought A bit of florist skill To guide its progress, till it caught The meaning of my will. When through the trellis in and out...

Receiving Sight Receiving Sight

Receiving Sight
In hours of meditation fraught With mem'ries of departed days, Comes oft a tender, loving thought Of one who shared our youthful plays. In gayest sports and pleasures rife Whose happy nature reveled so, That on her ardent, joyous life A shadow lay, we did not know; And bade her look one summer night Up to the sky that seemed to hold,...

Thanksgiving
Nature, erewhile so marvelously lovely, is bereft Of her supernal charm; And with the few dead garlands of departed splendor left, Like crape upon her arm, In boreal hints, and sudden gusts That fan the glowing ember,...

Of Her Who Died Of Her Who Died

Of Her Who Died
We look up to the stars tonight, Idolatrous of them, And dream that Heaven is in sight, And each a ray of purest light From some celestial gem In her bright diadem. Before that lonely home we wait, Ah! nevermore to see Her lovely form within the gate Where heart and hearthstone desolate And vine and shrub and tree...
