    Change (Hanford Lennox Gordon Poems)

    My Heart’s On The Rhine (Hanford Lennox Gordon Poems)

    [From the German of Wolfgang Muller.] My heart’s on the Rhine–in the old Father-land;Where my cradle was rocked by a dear mother’s hand,My youth and my friends–they are there yet, I know,And my love dreams of me with her cheeks … Continue reading
