James Beattie Poems

  • To The Right Honourable Lady Charlotte Gordon
    Why, Lady, wilt thou bind thy lovely brow
    With the dread semblance of that warlike helm,
    That nodding plume, and wreathe of various glow,
    That graced the chiefs of Scotia's ancient realm? ...
  • The Hermit
    At the close of day, when the hamlet is still,
    And mortals the sweets of forgetfulness prove,
    When nought but the torrent is heard on the hill,
    And nought but the nightingale's song in the grove. ...
  • Nature
    O how canst thou renounce the boundless store
    Of charms which Nature to her votary yields!
    The warbling woodland, the resounding shore,
    The pomp of groves, and garniture of fields; ...
  • Ode On Lord Hay's Birthday
    A Muse, unskill'd in venal praise,
    Unstain'd with flattery's art;
    Who loves simplicity of lays
    Breathed ardent from the heart; ...
  • Ode To Peace

Henry Lawson Poem
Do You Think That I Do Not Know?
 by Henry Lawson

They say that I never have written of love,
As a writer of songs should do;
They say that I never could touch the strings
With a touch that is firm and true;
They say I know nothing of women and men
In the fields where Love's roses grow,
And they say I must write with a halting pen
Do you think that I do not know?
