Elizabeth Stoddard Poems

  • Zanthon'my Friend
    I, knight-at-arms, in my own forest lost!
    Count of the empire, heir to crags and caves,
    And brother to the eagle and the fox!
    The music of the thunder, and the wind...
  • You Left Me
    You left me, and the anguish passed,
    And passed the day, and passed the night-
    A blank in which my senses failed;
    Then slowly came an inward light....
  • Why?
    Why did I go where roses grew,
    And meadow larks which skyward flew
    From grasses sparkling in the dew,
    The yellow sunshine pouring through?...
  • We Must Wait
    The testimony of my loss and gain
    Will I give utterance to, though none may hear.
    When long ago, bereft of all I loved,
    I sought in Nature recompense, implored...
  • Vers De Societe
    This chain of white arms round the room-
    The demon waltz-bewilders me:
    Or am I drunk with this good wine?
    Vive la compagnie!...

Poem of the day

Robert Service Poem
The Three Bares
 by Robert Service

Ma tried to wash her garden slacks but couldn't get 'em clean
And so she thought she'd soak 'em in a bucket o' benzine.
It worked all right. She wrung 'em out then wondered what she'd do
With all that bucket load of high explosive residue.
She knew that it was dangerous to scatter it around,
For Grandpa liked to throw his lighted matches on the ground.
Somehow she didn't dare to pour it down the kitchen sink,
And what the heck to do with it, poor Ma jest couldn't think.
