Louise Bogan Wind Poems

  • 1.
    The dark is thrown
    Back from the brightness, like hair
    Cast over a shoulder.
    I am alone,
  • 2.
    We have struck the regions wherein we are keel or reef.
    The wind breaks over us,
    And against high sharp angles almost splits into words,
    And these are of fear or grief.
  • 3.
    Since you would claim the sources of my thought
    Recall the meshes whence it sprang unlimed,
    The reedy traps which other hands have times

Robert Service Poem
The Three Bares
 by Robert Service

Ma tried to wash her garden slacks but couldn't get 'em clean
And so she thought she'd soak 'em in a bucket o' benzine.
It worked all right. She wrung 'em out then wondered what she'd do
With all that bucket load of high explosive residue.

For Grandpa liked to throw his lighted matches on the ground.
Somehow she didn't dare to pour it down the kitchen sink,
And what the heck to do with it, poor Ma jest couldn't think.
