Joseph Brodsky Face Poems

  • 1.

    with your palm, what your leaning
    brow would hunch to in evening's
    raven-black hush.

    It's not that the Muse feels like clamming up,
    it's more like high time for the lad's last nap.

    left in the diary, And the beads of quick
    words scatter over his spouse's sepia-shaded face
    adding the date in question like a mole to her lovely cheek.

Hilaire Belloc Poem
The Catholic Sun
 by Hilaire Belloc

Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine,
There-s always laughter and good red wine.
At least I-ve always found it so.
Benedicamus Domino!
