The Last Job Of An Old Tramp
REFLECTIONS ON BURNING A MASON’S MALLETFOR A YULE CLOG, ON CHRISTMAS EVE. O thou once highly valued piece of wood, By him who best that value understood; Whose purse so often thou didst help to fill,— Whom bed and board, Thou didst afford, Attended by thy train of sharpen’d steel! True to thy task throughout the changing year, Thy fellowship was... Poems - Post by : rmdecker - Date : November 2011 - Author : John Castillo - Read : 3073

Reflections On Absent Friends, Gone To America
The sun had gone down o’er yon lofty mountain, The last golden streamer had left the tall tree; The dwelling below seemed forsaken and gloomy, Its inmates were tossing upon the wide sea. The rose tree was nodding the lasses had nourish’d, Which oft had supplied them with Sunday’s perfume; The wall-flower in sorrowful modesty flourish’d, And wept o’er the beautiful daisy in bloom! In the track by the... Poems - Post by : coco_james - Date : November 2011 - Author : John Castillo - Read : 2035

The Lodger In Liverpool, Or, The Mason In Winter Nipt By The Frost
While a card party were enjoying themselves in an adjoining room. While sad I sit, oft musing over Happy days for ever fled; A lonely lodger in a corner, Like some hermit in his shed. All around seems blithe and merry; My light’s dim, and harp’s unstrung, While memory turns to yonder valley, On whose flowery banks I’ve sung. Dirty, ragged, and down-hearted,...

Village Preaching Village Preaching

Village Preaching
“Speak unto us smooth things.” (Isaiah xxx. 10.) Far over Cleveland’s lofty hills, Water’d by rivulets and rills, A lovely village doth appear, And o’er the trees its chimneys rear A church there is without a steeple, And several unconverted people; Though not much pious fruit appear, The people still desire to hear. To chapel oft they go and back, In their old summer beaten track, Where they... Poems - Post by : dudave - Date : November 2011 - Author : John Castillo - Read : 3305

Reflections On A Backslider Reflections On A Backslider

Reflections On A Backslider
How art thou fallen, thou son of the light! How happy the scenes from which thou art driven! Behold! if thy soul can dwell on the sight, Where thou didst once walk and hold converse with heaven! Then down turn thine eye to yon dreary place, To which with swift steps thy spirit is bound; See the hideous forms which thy spirit shall chase, Ere long in that fire which thee will surround! In anguish there thy... Poems - Post by : stumping708 - Date : November 2011 - Author : John Castillo - Read : 2417

A Love Letter! A Love Letter!

A Love Letter!
(To Miss ——) Forgive a stranger who would make so free, As to declare a suitor’s love for thee; And by the strength of his affection, move Thy heart to render back responsive love! The language these few humble lines impart, Though it seem rude, is from an honest heart; From one whose only aim and object is, Thy Lover’s glory, and thy future bliss. Not for myself would I now intercede,... Poems - Post by : magellon - Date : November 2011 - Author : John Castillo - Read : 1885

The Voice of Conscience says, Man! mind thyself, and all thyself; Thy inner self, thy outer self, Thy present self, thy future self, The best of self, and worst of self; Or it may chance that thou, thyself, For ever may’st upbraid thyself, For making such a fool of self, As not in time to know thyself!2nd.

On Visiting Fryup, During A Great Revival
O Fryup! far distant thy fame now extends, Kind Heav’n doth thy breaches repair; Thou land of religion, and bibles, and friends, I rejoice to breathe thy pure air! Thou land of devotion, and health to the soul, With pleasure I walk o’er thy plains; Where Christ to the sick hath oft spoken, “Be whole!” Where religion righteousness reigns! With...

On Finding Some Deistical Books In The House Of One Who Once Feared God!
“How is the gold become dim!” (Lamen. iv. 1.) False publications throw their gloomy rays, Where once the Sun of Righteousness did shine; With pain we recollect the former days, While scoffing infidels their voices join! Insulting Heav’n, they oft with brazen brow, Deny our Saviour is the Son of God! But soon to Him their every knee shall bow, And they shall groan beneath His iron rod!...

The Rule Of Contrary! The Rule Of Contrary!

The Rule Of Contrary!
Some men have Rules so incorrect, They almost always vary; And some make Rules to gain respect, But I’m for one contrary! Some strive to gain the smiles of men, But I prefer their frown; The torrent of my pride to stem, And keep ambition down! The praise of men’s an empty thing, And...

The Man Of The World!
From a boy much indulg’d, he grew up to a man, And had liberty almost unbounded; Nor scarce ever thought of this life’s little span, With prospects of plenty surrounded! His steed, like himself, in high spirits he views, As it snuffs at the fresh flowing fountain; On which oft at daybreak he brushes the dews, And gallops o’er valley and mountain!...

Confirmation Confirmation

Confirmation
The stars recede, the morn appears, So long anticipated! The air which now the spirit cheers, With shouts is agitated! The rustics full of mirth and glee, Are big with expectation, Of what they are to hear and see, When they’re at Confirmation! The road is fill’d from side to side, With bonny lads...

There Is A God!
“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.”--- (Psalm xiv. 1) There is a God who rules above! And man’s the object of His love! And Jesus, His beloved Son, Hath bled, and died to make this known. Though man his attributes deny, And utter daring blasphemy, He shall be conquer’d from above, By Justice, Judgment, or by Love. Though he be lusty now, and strong, And bold... Poems - Post by : tapatti - Date : November 2011 - Author : John Castillo - Read : 2625

On Some Who Had Left Us, And Spoken Disrespectfully Of Us!
“There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.” (Proverbs xxx. 12.) Yes! once they met with us, and gave us the hand, Uniting to sing and to pray; But long could not bear the rigid command, So off they went lilting away! Forsaking the vulgar, whom now they despise, For doctrines more learned and pure;— This cutting off hands,... Poems - Post by : wgrant - Date : November 2011 - Author : John Castillo - Read : 1044

Solitary Reflections!
(Occasioned by the death of a newly married pair, who drowned themselves, after living together three weeks.) On Esk’s old bank the watery willows weep, Where wife and husband launch’d into the deep;— And from their cottage sought an early grave, To end their jarring, in the peaceful wave Ah, hapless pair! who can withhold the tear, When he the melancholy place draws near! The dire event to future times will prove, The... Poems - Post by : spenk - Date : November 2011 - Author : John Castillo - Read : 589

The Remote Christian The Remote Christian

The Remote Christian
Deep in a glen, remote and wild, And far from affluence, A cottage stood, and heaven smil’d, Upon that residence. A couple liv’d there many years, In love and unity; Who careful in this vale of tears, Had rear’d a family. No costly goods their cot adorn, No shining liveries wait;...

On being solicited to attend a Theatre, by two young women, who urged their entreaties by the argument, “There is no harm in attending the Play!” Ye daughters of Albion’s flourishing isle, Come listen awhile to my lay; Defending your morals, you say with a smile, “There’s no harm in attending the Play!” Ye Theatre gallants, and deep witted men, Whose counsels so...

“He shall fly away as a dream.” (Job. xx. 8.) While here I sit musing alone, Not sharing the toils of the day, My spirit doth inwardly groan, At the symptoms I feel of decay. My care burden’d mind can’t be still, Though the external fabric be maim’d; Some part must be working the will Of Him who that fabric hath...
