Herbert Asquith Silver Poems

  • 1.
    THE sea-breeze beating on her brow,
    The foam asurge her shining feet,
    She stood,-a silver Victory,
    Poised high on some Athenian prow,
  • 2.
    IN domes of dim and ancient gold,
    In cloisters, where the lightning plays,
    Where gleam the gorgeous saints of old
    In aisles of jade and chrysoprase,
  • 3.
    O SILVER one, O silver one,
    Above the valley of the Bane:
    O stem with snow-water agleam,
    And glistening limbs, and trails of pearl.
  • 4.
    UNDER the stars the armies lie asleep:
    Between the lines a quiet river flows
    Through brakes of honeysuckle, and of rose,
    And fields where poppies droop in languor deep:
  • 5.
    SHE lay beneath an apple tree,
    A marble maiden, free from care;
    And round her was a canopy
    Of moonlit air.
  • 6.
    WHEN first I saw you, in eclipse,
    A veil about your head,
    And wondered at those unseen lips
    With wit bediamonded:
  • 7.
    THOR draws a chord invisible
    Across the shaking sky:
    I hear the tearing of the shell,
    The bullets sing and cry,

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.
