The Music Of Your Voice

A vase upon the mantelpiece,
A ship upon the sea,
A goat upon a mountain-top
Are much the same to me;
But when you mention melon jam,
Or picnics by the creek,
Or apple pies, or pantomimes,
I love to hear you speak.

The date of Magna Charta or
The doings of the Dutch,
Or capes, or towns, or verbs, or nouns
Do not excite me much;
But when you mention motor rides--
Down by the sea for choice
Or chasing games, or chocolates,
I love to hear your voice.

The Tram-man The Tram-man

The Tram-man
I'd like to be a Tram-man, and ride about all day,Calling out, "Fares, please!" in quite a 'ficious way,With pockets full of pennies which I'd make the people pay.But in the hottest days I'd take my tram down to the Bay;And when I saw the nice cool sea I'd shout "Hip, hip, hooray!"But I wouldn't be a Tram-man if. . . . I couldn't stop and play.

Bird Song (i Am Friendly With The Sparrow)
I am friendly with the sparrowThough his mind is rather narrow And his manners--well, the less we say the better.But as day begins to peep,When I hear his cheery "Cheep" I am ready to admit I am his debtorI delight in red-browed finchesAnd all birds of scanty inches. Willie wagtail is a pleasant bird, and coy.All the babblers, chats and wrens,Tits and robins, and their hens, Are my very special friends, and bring me joy.(The end)Clarence James Dennis's poem: Bird Song
