An Answer

When passing years have streaked with frost
These tresses now as jet,
When life's meridian is crossed
And beauty's sun has set,
When youth's last fleeting charm is lost,
Wilt thou be constant yet,
Nor time thy sentiment exhaust
And cause thee to forget?
If so--
My answer, I confess,
Shall be a calm, decided "Yes";
But otherwise a "No"!





(The end)

The First Storm The First Storm

The First Storm
The leafless branch and meadow sere, The dull and leaden skies,Join with the mournful wind and drearIn dirges for the passing year, Which unreturning flies.The night in starless gloom descends, Nor can the pale moonshineBreak through the clouds whose veil extendsIn boundless form, and darkly blends With the horizon's line.Fond nature, in a playful mood, In cover of the night,Arrays the plain and forest rude,The city and the solitude, In robe of spotless white.(The end)Alfred Castner King's poem: First Storm

The Fragrant Perfume Of The Flowers
The fragrant perfume of the flowers,Exuding in the summer hours,E'en as the altar's incense rareDisseminated through the air,May never reach the azure skies,Yet can the earth aromatize.And so the voice of secret prayer,Ascending on the wings of air,Though it should reach no listening ear,Of Deity inclined to hear,Still soothes the anguish of the mind,And leaves a tranquil peace behind.(The end)Alfred Castner King's poem: Fragrant Perfume Of The Flowers
