Country Sentiment - Advice to Lovers

ADVICE TO LOVERS.

I knew an old man at a Fair
Who made it his twice-yearly task
To clamber on a cider cask
And cry to all the yokels there:--

"Lovers to-day and for all time
Preserve the meaning of my rhyme:
Love is not kindly nor yet grim
But does to you as you to him.

"Whistle, and Love will come to you,
Hiss, and he fades without a word,
Do wrong, and he great wrong will do,
Speak, he retells what he has heard.

"Then all you lovers have good heed
Vex not young Love in word or deed:
Love never leaves an unpaid debt,
He will not pardon nor forget."

The old man's voice was sweet yet loud
And this shows what a man was he,
He'd scatter apples to the crowd
And give great draughts of cider, free.

NEBUCHADNEZZAR'S FALL.Frowning over the riddle that Daniel told,Down through the mist hung garden, below a feeble sun,The King of Persia walked: oh, the chilling cold!His mind was webbed with a grey shroud vapour-spun.Here for the pride of his soaring eagle heart,Here for his great hand searching the skies for food,Here for his courtship of Heaven's high stars he shall smart,Nebuchadnezzar shall fall, crawl, be subdued.Hot sun struck through the vapour, leaf strewn mouldBreathed sweet decay: old Earth called for her child.Mist drew off from his mind, Sun scattered gold,Warmth came and earthy motives fresh and wild.Down on his knees

Country Sentiment - Rocky Acres
ROCKY ACRES.This is a wild land, country of my choice, With harsh craggy mountain, moor ample and bare.Seldom in these acres is heard any voice But voice of cold water that runs here and there Through rocks and lank heather growing without care.No mice in the heath run nor no birds cryFor fear of the dark speck that floats in the sky.He soars and he hovers rocking on his wings, He scans his wide parish with a sharp eye,He catches the trembling of small hidden things, He tears them in pieces, dropping from the sky:
