    Guy Of The Temple (John Hay Poems)

    Down the dim West slow fails the stricken sun,And from his hot face fades the crimson flushVeiled in death’s herald-shadows sick and gray.Silent and dark the sombre valley liesForgotten; happy in the late fond beamsGlimmer the constant waves of Galilee.Afar, … Continue reading



    The Battle Of Cressy (Peter John Allan Poems)

    Drawn up in three divisions, soon as the English  foundThat the Frenchmen were advancing, they started  from the ground,Alarm’d, and burning in their hearts to teach that  mighty hostHow useless, where brace men are met, is every empty  boast;Although four times as numerous is … Continue reading

    Speak, crumbling mound, and tell to all the wood,How that beneath these weeds whereon I stray,A dark-roofed feasting hall of old has stood,A hall with heralds, knights and courtiers gay ;Ah! Once was heard amid this quiet glen,The clank of … Continue reading

    Chessmen (Kenneth Slessor Poems)
