The King The King

The King
A blown white bubble buoyed zenith-ward, Up from the tremulous East the round moon swung Mist-murky, and the unsocial stars that thronged, Hot with the drought, thick down the empty West, Winked thirstily; no wind to rouse the leaves, That o'er the glaring road lolled palpitant, Withered and whitened of the weary dust From iron hoofs of that gay fellowship Of knights which gat at morn the king disguised; Whose mind was, "in the...

From Unbelief To Belief From Unbelief To Belief

From Unbelief To Belief
Why come ye here to sigh that I, Who with crossed wrists so peaceless lie Before ye, am at rest, at rest! For that the pistons of my blood No more in this machinery thud? And on these eyes, that once were blest With magnetism of fire, are prest Thin, damp, pale eyelids for a sheath, Whereon the bony claw of Death Hath set his coins of unseen lead, Stamped with...

The Troubadour The Troubadour

The Troubadour
He stood where all the rare voluptuous West, Like some mad Maenad wine-stained to the breast, Shot from delirious lips of ruby must Long, fierce, triumphant smiles wherein hot lust Swam like a feverish wine exultant tost High from a golden goblet and so lost. And all the West, and all the rosy West, Bathed his frail beauty, hair and throat and breast; And there he bloomed, a thing of rose and snows, A...

To ---- To ----

To ----
"Lydia, dic, per omnes Te deos oro!" I What are the subtleties Which woo me in her eyes To oaths she deems but lies, I can not tell, I can not tell, Nor will she. They are beyond my thought. For when I gaze I'm nought, My senses all unwrought,... Poems - Post by : ajarbour - Date : November 2011 - Author : Madison Julius Cawein - Read : 3375

Music (the Soul Of Love Is Harmony; As Such) Music (the Soul Of Love Is Harmony; As Such)

Music (the Soul Of Love Is Harmony; As Such)
(A NOCTURNE.) The soul of love is harmony; as such All melodies, that with wide pinions beat Elastic bars, which mew it in the flesh, Till 'twould away to kiss their throats and cling, Are kindred to the soul, and while they sway, Lords of its action molding all at will. Ah! neither was I I, nor knew the clay, For all my soul lay on full waves of song Reverberating 'twixt the earth...

The Wind The Wind

The Wind
The ways of the wind are eerie And I love them all, The blithe, the mad, and the dreary, Spring, Winter, and Fall. When it tells to the waiting crocus Its beak to show, And hangs on the wayside locust Bloom-bunches of snow. When it comes like a balmy blessing From the musky wood, The half-grown roses caressing...

Miriam Miriam

Miriam
White clouds and buds and birds and bees, Low wind-notes piped from southern seas, Brought thee a rose-white offering, A flower-like baby with the Spring. She, as her April, gave to thee A soul of winsome vagary; Large, heavenly eyes, and tender, whence Shone the sweet mind's soft influence; Where all the winning woman, that Welled up in tears, high sparkling sat. She, with the dower of her May,... Poems - Post by : twinhorizons - Date : November 2011 - Author : Madison Julius Cawein - Read : 889

Lalage Lalage

Lalage
What were sweet life without her Who maketh all things sweet With smiles that dream about her, With dreams that come and fleet! Soft moods that end in languor; Soft words that end in sighs; Curved frownings as of anger; Cold silence of her eyes. Sweet eyes born but for slaying, Deep violet-dark and lost In dreams of whilom Maying... Poems - Post by : Padawan - Date : November 2011 - Author : Madison Julius Cawein - Read : 2388

St. John's Eve St. John's Eve

St. John's Eve
I Dizzily round On the elf-hills white in the yellow moonlight To a sweet, unholy, ravishing sound Of wizard voices from underground, Their mazy dance the Elle-maids wound On St. John's Eve. II Beautiful white, Like a wreath of mist by the starbeams kissed; And frail, sweet faces bloomed out on the night...

The Changeling The Changeling

The Changeling
I There were Faëries two or three, And a high moon white as wool, Or a bloom in Faëry, Where the star-thick blossoms be Star-like beautiful. II There were Faëries two or three, And a wind as fragrant as Spicy wafts from Arcady Rocked the sleeping honey bee In the clover grass. III There...

Face To Face Face To Face

Face To Face
Dead! and all the haughty fate Fair on throat and face of wax, White, calm hands crossed still and lax, Cold, impassionate! Dead! and no word whispered low At the dull ear now could wake One responsive chord or make One wan temple glow. Dead! and no hot tear would stir All that woman sweet and fair, Woman soul...

Song (far Over The Summer Sea) Song (far Over The Summer Sea)

Song (far Over The Summer Sea)
I Far over the summer sea, Ere the white-eyed stars wax pale, From the groves where a nightingale Wails a mystical melody, I turn my ghostly sail Away, away, To follow a face I see Far over the summer sea. II Far over the summer sea, Ere the cliff which highest soars From the foam re-echoing shores Reddens...

A Thought A Thought

A Thought
And I have thought of youth which strains Nearer its God to rise,-- What were ambition and its pains Were life a cowardice! The grander souls that rose above Thought's noblest heights to tread, Found their endeavor in their love, And truth behind the dead. A secret glory in the tomb, A night that dawns in light, An intense presence veiled... Poems - Post by : bow-viper1 - Date : November 2011 - Author : Madison Julius Cawein - Read : 2597

A Mood A Mood

A Mood
Bowed hearts that hold the saddest memories Are the most beautiful; and such make sweet Light happy moods of alien natures which Their sadness contacts, and so sanctifies. And such to me is an old, gabled house, Deserted and neglected and unknown Within the dreamy hollow of its hills, Dark, cedared hills and fruitless orchards sear; With but its host of shrouded memories Haunting its low and desolate rooms and halls,...

A Character A Character

A Character
He lived beyond us and we stood As pygmies to his every mood, Mere pupils at his beck and nod, That spoke the influence of a god. And oft we wondered, when his thought Made our humanity seem naught, If he, like Uther's mystic son, Were not a birth for Avalon. When wand'ring 'neath the sighing trees, His soul waxed genial with the breeze, That, voiceful, from the piney glades...

In November In November

In November
No windy white of wind-blown clouds is thine, No windy white but low and sodden gray, That holds the melancholy skies and kills The wild song and the wild bird; yet, ai me! Thy melancholy skies and mournful woods, Brown, sighing forests dying that I love! Thy long thick leaves deep, deep about my feet, Slow, weary feet that halt or falter on; Thy long, sweet, reddened leaves that burn and die With silent...

Artemis Artemis

Artemis
Oft of the hiding Oread wast thou seen At earliest morn, a tall imperial shape, High-buskined, dew-dripped, and on close, chaste curls, Long blackness of thick hair, the tipsy drops Caught from the dipping sprays of under bosks, Kissed of thy cheek and of thy shoulder brushed, Thy rosy cheek as haughty Hera's fair, Thy snow-soft shoulder luminous as light. Oft did the shaggy hills and solitudes Of Arethusa shout and ring and reel,... Poems - Post by : supershoponline - Date : November 2011 - Author : Madison Julius Cawein - Read : 2320

Lillita Lillita

Lillita
Can I forget how, when you stood 'Mid orchards whence spring bloom had fled, Stars made the orchards seem a-bud, And weighed the sighing boughs o'erhead With shining ghosts of blossoms dead! Or when you bowed, a lily tall, Above your August lilies slim, Transparent pale, that by the wall Like softest moonlight seemed to swim, Brimmed with faint fragrance to the...

The Spring The Spring

The Spring
"O Fons Bandusiæ!" Push back the brambles, berry-blue, The hollowed spring is full in view; Deep tangled with luxuriant fern Its rock-imbedded crystal urn. Not for the loneliness that keeps The coigne wherein its silence sleeps; Not for wild butterflies that sway Their pansy pinions all the day Above its mirror; nor the bee, Nor dragon-fly which passing see Themselves reflected in its spar; Not...

Where And What? Where And What?

Where And What?
Her ivied towers tall Old forests belt and bar, And oh! the West's dim mountain crests That line the blue afar. Her gardens face dark cliffs, That seeth against a sea As blue and deep as the eyes of Sleep With saddening mystery....
