Anne Killigrew Alone Poems

  • 1.
    Divine Thalia strike th' Harmonious Lute,
    But with a Stroke so Gentle as may sute
    The silent gliding of the Howers,
    Or yet the calmer growth of Flowers;
  • 2.
    Under the Discipline of an Excellent Person.
    How comes the Day orecast? the Flaming Sun
    Darkn'd at Noon, as if his Course were run?
  • 3.
    On GALLA.

    Now liquid Streams by the fierce Cold do grow
    As solid as the Rocks from whence they flow;
  • 4.
    In Answer to his Complemental Verses sent me under the Name of CLEANOR.

    Long my dull Muse in heavy slumbers lay,
    Indulging Sloth, and to soft Ease gave way,
  • 5.
    Arise my Dove, from mid'st of Pots arise,
    Thy sully'd Habitation leave,
    To Dust no longer cleave,
  • 6.
    Under the Name of ALINDA.
    A SONG.

    As those who pass the Alps do say,
    The Rocks which first oppose their way,
    And so amazing-High do show,
    By fresh Ascents appear but low,
  • 8.
    1 In that so temperate Soil Arcadia nam'd,
    1 For fertile Pasturage by Poets fam'd;
    2 Stands a steep Hill, whose lofty jetting Crown,
    3 Casts o'er the neighbouring Plains, a seeming Frown;

Ernest Dowson Poem
Vain Hope
 by Ernest Dowson

Sometimes, to solace my sad heart, I say,
Though late it be, though lily-time be past,
Though all the summer skies be overcast,
Haply I will go down to her, some day,
And cast my rests of life before her feet,
That she may have her will of me, being so sweet
And none gainsay!
