Anne Killigrew Great Poems

  • 1.
    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?
  • 2.
    Drown'd under London-bridge, in the Queens Bardge, Anno 1641

    The Darling of a Father Good and Wise,
  • 3.
    Whose Lord was Travelling.

    No sooner I pronounced Celindas name,
  • 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.
    Under the Name of ALINDA.
    A SONG.

  • 6.

    1 Here take no Care, take here no Care, my Muse,
  • 7.
    Return my dearest Lord, at length return,
    Let me no longer your sad absence mourn,
    Ilium in Dust, does no more Work afford,
    No more Employment for your Wit or Sword.
  • 8.
    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,
  • 9.
    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;

Andrew Lang Poem
Melville And Coghill - The Place Of The Little Hand
 by Andrew Lang

DEAD, with their eyes to the foe,
Dead, with the foe at their feet;
Under the sky laid low
Truly their slumber is sweet,
Though the wind from the Camp of the
Slain Men blow,
And the rain on the wilderness beat.
