Ban And Arriere Ban - The Disappointment Ban And Arriere Ban - The Disappointment

Ban And Arriere Ban - The Disappointment
The DisappointmentA house I took, and many a spookWas deemed to haunt that House,I bade the glum Researchers comeWith Bogles to carouse.That House I'd sought with anxious thought,'Twas old, 'twas dark as sin,And deeds of bale, so ran the tale,Had oft been done therein.Full many a child its mother wild,Men said, had strangled there,Full many a sire, in heedless ire,Had slain his daughter fair!'Twas rarely let: I can't forgetA recent tenant's dread,This widow lone had heard a moanProceeding from her...

Stanzas: A Mother Gazes Upon Her Daughter, Arrayed For An Approaching Bridal Stanzas: A Mother Gazes Upon Her Daughter, Arrayed For An Approaching Bridal

Stanzas: A Mother Gazes Upon Her Daughter, Arrayed For An Approaching Bridal
Written in Illustration of a Tableau Vivant Is she not lovely! Oh! when, long ago, My own dead mother gazed upon my face, As I stood blushing near in bridal snow, I had not half her beauty and her grace. Yet that fond mother praised, the world caressed, And ONE adored me--how shall HE who soon Shall wear my gentle flower upon his breast, Prize to its utmost worth the priceless boon? Shall he not gird her, guard her, make her rich, (Not as the world is... Poems - Post by : grodgers - Author : Henry Timrod - Read : 2953

Written In An Album Written In An Album

Written In An Album
Judge we of coming, by the by-past, years, And still can Hope, the siren, soothe our fears? Cheated, deceived, our cherished day-dreams o'er, We cling the closer, and we trust the more. Oh, who can say there's bliss in the review Of hours, when Hope with fairy fingers drew A magic sketch of "rapture yet to be," A rainbow horizon, a life of glee! The world all bright before us--vivid scene Of cloudless sunshine and of fadeless green; A treacherous picture of our coming years, Bright in...

All That Was Possible All That Was Possible

All That Was Possible
Slope under slope the pastures dip With ribboned waterfalls, and make Scant room for just a village strip, The setting of a sapphire lake. And here, when summer draws the kine To upland grasses patched with snow, Our travellers rest not, only dine, Then driven by Furies, onward go. For pilgrims of the pointed stick, With passport case for scallop shell, Scramble for worshipped Alps too quick To care for vales where mortals dwell. Twice daily swarms...

Imperator Augustus Imperator Augustus

Imperator Augustus
Is this the man by whose decree abide The lives of countless nations, with the trace Of fresh tears wet upon the hard cold face? --He wept, because a little child had died. They set a marble image by his side, A sculptured Eros, ready for the chase; It wore the dead boy's features, and the grace Of pretty ways that were the old man's pride. And so he smiled, grown softer now, and tired Of too much empire, and it seemed a joy Fondly to stroke and pet... Poems - Post by : mhshariff - Author : Rennell Rodd - Read : 2923

For He knoweth our frame, He remembereth that we are dust.--PSALM CIII. 14. Oh Lord, when all our bones are thrust Beyond the gaze of all but Thine; And these blaspheming tongues are dust Which babbled of Thy name divine, How helpless then to carp or rail Against the canons of Thy word; Wilt Thou, when thus our spirits fail, Have mercy, Lord? Here from this ebon speck that floats As but a mote within Thine eye, Vain sneers and curses from our throats Rise to the vault of...

Reflections Of A Jacobite Reflections Of A Jacobite

Reflections Of A Jacobite
Mourn, mourn, ye spirits of the brave, for glories passed away; Mourn that the sceptre of your king should own a stranger's sway; Mourn that the crown, which graced his brow by sovereign right divine, Should e'er in regal mockery adorn an upstart line. But mourn the more that those, who boast your blood within their veins, To such reproaches should submit while any drop remains, That those, whose names are heroes' names, transmitted from the free, The subjects of a foreign lord, in cherished...
