George Canning God Poems

  • 1.
    What holy rites Mohammed's laws ordain,
    What various duties bind his faithful train,--
    What pious zeal his scatter'd tribes unites
    In fix'd observance of these holy rites,--
  • 2.
    Though short thy span, God's unimpeach'd decrees,
    Which made that shorten'd span one long disease,
    Yet merciful in chastening, gave thee scope
    For mild, redeeming virtues, Faith and Hope;
  • 3.
    Unrivall'd Greece! thou ever honor'd name,
    Thou nurse of heroes dear to deathless fame!
    Though now to worth, to honor all unknown,
    Thy lustre faded, and thy glories flown;
  • 4.
    Friend of Humanity

    1'Needy Knife-grinder! whither are you going?
    2Rough is the road, your wheel is out of order-
  • 5.
    May this dreary abode be for ever unknown,
    For ever, by virtue, by Pity, untrod;
    Unbreathed be his name, and unhonor'd his stone;
    The foe of his country, his monarch, his God.
  • 6.
    Though short thy space, God's unimpeach'd decrees
    Which made that shorten'd space one long disease;
    Yet, merciful in chast'ning, gave thee scope
    For mild redeeming virtues, faith and hope,

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.
