John Vance Cheney Poems

  • 1.
    Knitting is the maid o' the kitchen, Milly,
    Doing nothing sits the chore boy, Billy:
    "Seconds reckoned,
    Seconds reckoned;
  • 2.
    Who drives the horses of the sun
    Shall lord it but a day;
    Better the lowly deed were done,
    And kept the humble way.
  • 3.
    The weasel thieves in silver suit,
    The rabbit runs in gray;
    And Pan takes up his frosty flute
    To pipe the cold away.

When people have put out the Lights
And everything that has an Inn
Closes the shutter and goes in-

How pompous the Wind must feel Noons
