Poems

By: Victor Hugo

Towards the close of the First French Revolution, Joseph Leopold Sigisbert Hugo, son of a joiner at Nancy, and an officer risen from the ranks in the Republican army, married Sophie Trebuchet, daughter of a Nantes fitter-out of privateers, a Vendean royalist and devotee. Victor Marie Hugo, their second son, was born on the 26th of February, 1802, at Besancon, France. Though a weakling, he was carried, with his boy-brothers, in the train of their father through the south ...

War Song

By: John Davidson

Poetry

Excerpt: IN anguish we uplift // A new unhallowed song: // The race is to the swift; // The battle to the strong. // Of old it was ordained // That we, in packs like curs, // Some thirty million trained // And licensed murderers, // In crime should live and act, // If cunning folk say sooth // Who flay the naked fact // And carve the heart of truth. // The rulers cry aloud, // We cannot cancel war, // The end and bloody shroud // Of wrongs the worst abhor, // And order's...

Song of a Train

By: John Davidson

Poetry

Excerpt: A MONSTER taught // To come to hand // Amain, // As swift as thought // Across the land // The train. // The song it sings // Has an iron sound; // Its iron wings // Like wheels go round. // Crash under bridges, // Flash over ridges, // And vault the downs; // The road is straight - // Nor stile, nor gate; // For milestones - towns! // Voluminous, vanishing, white, // The steam plume trails; // Parallel streaks of light, // THe polished rails. // Oh, who can fol...

A Runnable Stag

By: John Davidson

Poetry

Excerpt: WHEN the pods went pop on the broom, green broom, // And apples began to be golden-skinn'd, // We harbour'd a stag in the Priory coomb, // And we feather'd his trail up-wind, up-wind, // We feather'd his trail up-wind- // A stag of warrant, a stag, a stag, // A runnable stag, a kingly crop, // Brow, bay and tray and three on top, // A stag, a runnable stag. // Then the huntsman's horn rang yap, yap yap, // And 'Forwards' we heard the harbourer shout; // But 'twa...

Aubade

By: William Davenant

Poetry

Excerpt: The lark now leaves his wat'ry nest, // And climbing shakes his dewy wings. // He takes this window for the East, // And to implore your light he sings- // Awake, awake! the morn will never rise // Till she can dress her beauty at your eyes. // The merchant bows unto the seaman's star, // The ploughman from the sun his season takes; // But still the lover wonders what they are // Who look for day before his mistress wakes. // Awake, awake! break thro' your veils...

It Is Not Beauty I Demand

By: George Darley

Poetry

Excerpt: IT is not Beauty I demand, // A crystal brow, the moon's despair, // Nor the snow's daughter, a white hand, // Nor mermaid's yellow pride of hair. // Tell me not of your starry eyes, // Your lips that seem on roses fed, // Your breasts where Cupid trembling lies, // Nor sleeps for kissing of his bed. // A bloomy pair of vermeil cheeks, // Like Hebe's in her ruddiest hours, // A breath that softer music speaks // Than summer winds a-wooing flowers. // These are b...

The Face on the Barroom Floor

By: Hugh Antoine D'Arcy

Poetry

Excerpt: TWAS a balmy summer evening, and a goodly crowd was there, // Which well-nigh filled Joe's barroom, on the corner of the square; // And as songs and witty stories came through the open door, // A vagabond crept slowly in and posed upon the floor. // Where did it come from? someone said. The wind has blown it in. // What does it want? another cried. Some whiskey, rum or gin? // Here, Toby, sic 'em, if your stomach's equal to the work - // I wouldn't touch him wi...

Delia

By: Samuel Daniel

Poetry

Excerpt: When men shall find thy flower, thy glory pass, // And thou with carefull brow sitting alone, // Received hast this message from thy glass, // That tells thee truth, and says that all is gone, // Fresh shalt thou see in me the wounds thou madest; // Though spent thy flame, in me the heat remaining. // I that have lov'd thee thus before thou fadest, // My faith shall wax, when thou art in thy waning. // The world shall find this miracle in me, // That fire can bu...

Delia

By: Samuel Daniel

Poetry

Excerpt: If Beauty thus be clouded with a frown, // That pity shines no comfort to my bliss, // And vapors of disdain so overfrown, // That my life's light thus wholy darken'd is, // Why should I more molest the world with cries, // The air with sighs, the earth below with tears? // Since I live hateful to those ruthless eyes, // Vexing with untun'd moan her dainty ears; // If I have lov'd her dearer than my breath, // My breath that calls the heav'ns to witness it, // A...

Delia

By: Samuel Daniel

Poetry

Excerpt: Unto the boundless Ocean of thy beauty // Runs this poor river, charg'd with streams of zeal: // Returning thee the tribute of my duty, // Which here my love, my youth, my plaints reveal. // Here I unclasp the book of my charg'd soul, // Where I have cast th'accounts of all my care: // Here have I summ'd my sighs, here I enroll // How they were spent for thee; look what they are. // Look on the dear expences of my youth, // And see how just I reckon with thine e...

Love Is a Sickness

By: Samuel Daniel

Poetry

Excerpt: LOVE is a sickness full of woes, // All remedies refusing; // A plant that with most cutting grows, // Most barren with best using. // Why so? // More we enjoy it, more it dies; // If not enjoyed, sighing cries // Heigh Ho! // Love is a torment of the mind, // A tempest everlasting; // And Jove hath made it of a kind // Not well, nor full, nor fasting. // Why so? // More we enjoy it, more it dies; // If not enjoyed, sighing cries // Heigh Ho! // Samuel Daniel //...
