Gamaliel Bradford Love Poems

  • 1.
    I like to read confessions
    As lengthy as Rousseau's,
    With all their slow processions
    Of innumerable woes.
  • 2.
    I've been a hopeless sinner, but I understand a
    Their bend of weary knees and their con-
    tortions long and faint,
  • 3.
    An eye where love with laughter twinkles,
    And songs on kisses still insistent,
    Blended with graying hair and wrinkles,
    To you, my child, seem inconsistent?
  • 4.
    You really can't imagine how I love the ancient Greeks.
    I love the dancing language where their mobile spirit speaks.
    I love the songs of Homer, flowing on like streams of light,
    With a touch of human kindness in the splendid shock of fight.
  • 5.
    The huge old earth shook and quivered,
    When it heard my passionate cry.
    Why, even the little stars shivered
    And almost went out in the sky.
  • 6.
    Silly little bird,
    Singing of its love,
    Sang and never heard
    Winds of wrath above.
  • 7.
    Down come the leaves,
    Like fleeting years,
    Or idle tears
    Of love that grieves.
  • 8.
    I deliver a lecture
    And pour out my soul,
    Its full architecture,
    All rounded and whole.

Success And Failure
 by Edgar Albert Guest

I do not think all failure's undeserved,
And all success is merely someone's luck;
Some men are down because they were unnerved,
And some are up because they kept their pluck.
Some men are down because they chose to shirk;
Some men are high because they did their work.

I do not think that all the poor are good,
