Singing Secrets Singing Secrets

Singing Secrets
Bird up in the pine-tree-top, Tossing down to me Broken songs, to where I sit Underneath the tree,-- Bird up in the pine-tree-top, What is it you hear That you try to say again In your singing clear? What is it you see up there In the green and blue? Does the world look very strange,-- Strange and fair to you? Do you see some happy thing That you try to show In...

Eavesdroppers Eavesdroppers

Eavesdroppers
The stars lean down and listen, At fairy-story time; They twinkle and they glisten To hear each happy rhyme; To all our cheerful singing The little stars beat time. The stars lean down and hear us, They know it's not polite, But then, they cease to fear us, About this time of night. They creep and edge up near us, Although it isn't right. Eavesdroppers! But we love them, We leave a little space,... Poems - Post by : helloworld - Date : October 2011 - Author : Mary Carolyn Davies - Read : 3047

The Flower Cart The Flower Cart

The Flower Cart
The flower cart's coming down the street, With tulips red and tulips sweet; And from the wagon color spills Of hyacinths and daffodils. And purple rhododendrons grow Beside the roses in a row. Oh, let us hasten down to spend, Before the flower cart rounds the bend! Oh, let us bring our pennies and Hold all of Spring within our hand.(The end)Mary Carolyn Davies's poem: Flower Cart...

Sea-butterflies Sea-butterflies

Sea-butterflies
The sea is like a garden green, The spray like daisies white; And one full rose alone is seen, The great red sun at night. A-fluttering in their loveliness The ships against the skies Are just--as any one can guess-- The garden's butterflies!(The end)Mary Carolyn Davies's poem: Sea-Butterflies...

To Ships To Ships

To Ships
Tall ships, tall ships, sailing out to sea, Have you in your dreaming hearts any room for me, For a little singing maid who would sail with you Out to where the ocean miles are blue, blue, blue? Tall ships, tall ships, loosening from shore, Steering all by star-craft, and sailing evermore, Take a little wishful maid with you as you go! I would feel the ocean tempests blow, blow, blow! Tall ships, tall ships, see, I stretch my hands! Pray you, take me with you to far and foreign lands!...

I Almost Got To Fairyland One Day-- I Almost Got To Fairyland One Day--

I Almost Got To Fairyland One Day--
I almost got to Fairyland, one day-- I walked out straight along the sun-path, so. And there were little hummings in the world, And moving things went through the grass, and all The air was just as glad as if there were A party, somewhere, at a fairy's house. I knew they had a party, and I knew That they had kept a seat for me, if I Could only find the right turn in the road. I was so near to Fairyland, so near That I could almost hear the...

The Nest The Nest

The Nest
That tree has a nest, And if I lie Quite still, and if I Have luck, I may see Two heads or three Stretched out. Hark! hark! Wings sound! And a dark Shadow comes flying Through boughs. They are trying To reach the food that the large bird brings. Unfinished wings Are such curious things! They are almost old enough to fly, The three. If they knew As I do, and you, That nests are cozier than the sky!(The end)Mary Carolyn Davies's...

The Playmate The Playmate

Last year I played with the country, This year, with the sea, Now the queer old city Stops and plays with me.-- Stops in its counting of pennies (It never, never fails To know the time I'm going to bed)-- And tells me fairy tales.(The end)Mary Carolyn Davies's poem: Playmate...

A white birch grows In the deepest wood.

Green and yellow cockatoo, Won't you let me talk to you? Or if you would kinder be Won't you come and talk to me? Tell me all about the places Where the children have black faces, Armlets, anklets, copper rings! Where the cannibals are kings! Has a hungry crocodile Ever met you with a smile?

When Dolly Is Afraid When Dolly Is Afraid

When Dolly Is Afraid
When lights are standing in the street; And on the sidewalk all the feet Are quiet, and it's growing late, And our brown clock is striking eight: I pack the animals and ark, And push them deep into the dark; And in a quiet row I lay My cups and saucers 'til the day. But who could ever say Good-night And leave her doll in such a plight? I couldn't let her stay without A friend, and hear the dark about! So she and I go straight upstairs;...
