    The Old Sheperd’s Recollections (Matilda Betham Poems)

    Low, heavy clouds are hanging on the hills,  And half-impatient of the sun’s approach,  Shake sullenly their cold and languid wings!  Oh! it is fine to see his morning beams  Burst on the gloom, while, in disorder’d flight,  The shuddering, mournful vapours steal away;  Like the … Continue reading



    A Dialogue At Fiesole (Alfred Austin Poems)

    HE.Halt here awhile. That mossy-cushioned seatIs for your queenliness a natural throne;As I am fitly couched on this low sward,Here at your feet. SHE.And I, in thought, at yours:My adoration, deepest. HE.Deep, so deep,I have no thought wherewith to fathom … Continue reading



    Lines On The Death Of The Princess Charlotte (John Anster Poems)

    Weep!–for the wrath of God is over us!Weep!–for his arm is lifted to destroy!Famine hath thinned the land! in Autumn’s galeWe felt his icy breath:–Plague rushes by,Or, resting in clear air on silent wing,Numbers his victims, who behold him not.–Still … Continue reading



    Prometheus (James Russell Lowell Poems)

    I Stood Tip-Toe Upon A Little Hill (John Keats Poems)

    I stood tip-toe upon a little hill, The air was cooling, and so very still, That the sweet buds which with a modest pride Pull droopingly, in slanting curve aside, Their scantly leaved, and finely tapering stems,    Had not yet lost those starry diadems Caught from … Continue reading

    Ole (Giorgi Leonidze Poems)

          1.                  Lone tree, on a rock by Liakhvi,      You stand, clothed in tatters, -      Ole,            Ole,                 Solitary,      All day and through long nights;      Inside something is burning you -      Poisoned by loneliness,      From inside you have split outward,      Your bark cracked and flaking.      You have grown both straight and crooked      A tree … Continue reading
