Lord John Wilmot Poems

  • To This Moment A Rebel
    To this moment a rebel I throw down my arms,
    Great Love, at first sight of Olinda's bright charms.
    Make proud and secure by such forces as these,
    You may now play the tyrant as soon as you please. ...
  • Absent Of Thee I Languish Still
    Absent from thee I languish still;
    Then ask me not, when I return?
    The straying fool 'twill plainly kill
    To wish all day, all night to mourn. ...
  • To His Mistress
    Why dost thou shade thy lovely face? O why
    Does that eclipsing hand of thine deny
    The sunshine of the Sun's enlivening eye?
  • My Dear Mistress Has A Heart
    My dear mistress has a heart
    Soft as those kind looks she gave me,
    When with love's resistless art,
    And her eyes, she did enslave me; ...
  • A Woman's Honour
    Love bade me hope, and I obeyed;
    Phyllis continued still unkind:
    Then you may e'en despair, he said,
    In vain I strive to change her mind. ...

Emily Dickinson Poem
How lonesome the Wind must feel Nights'
 by Emily Dickinson


How lonesome the Wind must feel Nights-
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
