    The Double Transformati (Oliver Goldsmith Poems)

    Secluded from domestic strife,Jack Book-worm led a college life;A fellowship at twenty-fiveMade him the happiest man alive;He drank his glass and crack’d his joke,             And freshmen wonder’d as he spoke. Such pleasures, unalloy’d with care,Could any accident impair?Could Cupid’s shaft … Continue reading

    Riding Round the Lines (Henry Lawson Poems)

    Dust and smoke against the sunrise out where grim disaster lurksAnd a broken sky-line looming like unfinished railway works,And a trot, trot, trot and canter down inside the belt of mines:It is General Greybeard Shrapnel who is riding round his … Continue reading

    The Pioneer (James Russell Lowell Poems)

    Fox’s Dingle (Robert Graves Poems)

      Take now a country mood,    Resolve, distil it: –  Nine Acre swaying alive,    June flowers that fill it,   Spicy sweet-briar bush,    The uneasy wren  Fluttering from ash to birch    And back again.   Milkwort on its low stem,    Spread hawthorn tree,  Sunlight patching the wood,    A hive-bound bee….   Girls riding … Continue reading

    In a sailormen’s restaurant Rotherhithe way,Where the din of the docksides is loud all the day,And the breezes come bringing off basin and pondAnd all the piled acres of lumber beyond,From the Oregon ranges the tang of the pineAnd the … Continue reading

    The Innkeeper’s Wife (Clive Sansom Poems)

    I love this byre. Shadows are kindly here.The light is flecked with travelling stars of dust,So quiet it seems after the inn-clamour,Scraping of fiddles and the stamping feet.Only the cows, each in her patient box,Turn their slow eyes, as we … Continue reading
