James Joyce Poems

  • Tutto è Sciolto
    A birdless heaven, seadusk, one lone star
    Piercing the west,
    As thou, fond heart, love's time, so faint, so far,
    Rememberest. ...
  • From Dewy Dreams
    From dewy dreams, my soul, arise,
    From love's deep slumber and from death,
    For lo! the treees are full of sighs
    Whose leaves the morn admonisheth. ...
  • Tutto à? Sciolto
    A birdless heaven, seadusk, one lone star
    Piercing the west,
    As thou, fond heart, love's time, so faint, so far,
    Rememberest. ...
  • He Who Hath Glory Lost
    He who hath glory lost, nor hath
    Found any soul to fellow his,
    Among his foes in scorn and wrath
    Holding to ancient nobleness, ...
  • From 'ulysses'
    There's a ponderous pundit MacHugh
    Who wears goggles of ebony hue.
    As he mostly sees double
    To wear them why trouble? ...

Henry Lawson Poem
 by Henry Lawson

Where's the steward?-Bar-room steward? Berth? Oh, any berth will do-
I have left a three-pound billet just to come along with you.
Brighter shines the Star of Rovers on a world that-s growing wide,
But I think I-d give a kingdom for a glimpse of Sydney-Side.
Run of rocky shelves at sunrise, with their base on ocean-s bed;
Homes of Coogee, homes of Bondi, and the lighthouse on South Head.
For in loneliness and hardship-and with just a touch of pride-
Has my heart been taught to whisper, -You belong to Sydney-Side.-
