Edward Smyth Jones Live Poems

  • 1.
    To a violet that faded on my coat at Natchez, Miss. March 8th, 1902.

    Alas! thou lovely floweret wee,
  • 2.
    While I keep my lonely hall,
    You are welcome one and all,
    As I sing my little song;
    Stay, I'll cheer you all day long -
  • 3.
    Flag of the free, our sable sires
    Have borne thee oft before
    Into hot battles' hell-lit fires,
    Against the fiercest foe.
  • 4.
    TO D. M. M.

    Greeks once sang a lovely song
  • 5.
    Aye! many a rhyme my pen has flown,
    In oblivion, all unknown;
    Still many more, perchance, I say,
    Float on in one unbroken lay -
  • 6.
    TO A. B. B.

    Thou art, fair maid, the Morning Star,
  • 7.
    Were I a bird free born to fly
    Aloof on two wee, downy wings,
    My canopy would be the sky
    When rosy morn its dawning springs.

Robert Service Poem
Her Toys
 by Robert Service

I sat her in her baby chair,
And set upon its tray
Her kewpie doll and teddy bear,
But no, she would not play.
Although they looked so wistfully
Her favour to implore,
She laughed at me with elfin glee
And dashed them to the floor.
