    Retrospect; (Charles Tompson Poems)

    Or,A Review of my Scholastic Days “O, Festus Dies Hominis!”-O, the Joyful Day of Man!Why, (when the hours of school-day bliss are o’er,And puerile pleasures charm the mind no more,When childhood shrinks before youth’s riper day,Like morning dews by sunbeams … Continue reading



    Tale X (George Crabbe Poems)

    THE LOVER’S JOURNEY. It is the Soul that sees:  the outward eyesPresent the object, but the Mind descries;And thence delight, disgust, or cool indiff’rence rise:When minds are joyful, then we look around,And what is seen is all on fairy ground;Again … Continue reading



    Vesalius In Zante (Edith Wharton Poems)

    Set wide the window. Let me drink the day.I loved light ever, light in eye and brain-No tapers mirrored in long palace floors,Nor dedicated depths of silent aisles,But just the common dusty wind-blown dayThat roofs earth’s millions. O, too long … Continue reading

    The Hosts (Alan Seeger Poems)

    Purged, with the life they left, of allThat makes life paltry and mean and small,In their new dedication chargedWith something heightened, enriched, enlarged,That lends a light to their lusty browsAnd a song to the rhythm of their trampling feet,These are … Continue reading



    The Ruined Home (Annie Adams Fields Poems)

    AT nightfall, coming from the wood,    I crossed the hilltop’s gloomy brow,Where one unsheltered farmhouse stood,    Neglected, dark, and low. No lamp announced a breathing soul;    The chimney’s blue, reluctant threadAlone betrayed a living coal    Of … Continue reading



    Butte (Aaron Southwick Poems)

    How oft my mind reverts to thee,     Thou city of the tunneled hills;Thy lofty towers I still can see,Thy smoke descending silently     Till all thy dingy streets it fills. Thy engines puff, and roll, and slide … Continue reading



    Ego (Abner Cosens Poems)

    The ego of the human race,      The sordid love of self,    We see it in life’s hurried chase,      The grafter’s greed for pelf.    The horror of the battle field,      The killed, the … Continue reading
