    Palm branch of Palestine, oh tell me,
    In that far distant home-land fair,
    Wast rooted in the mountain gravel
    Or sprung from some vale garden rare? ...
  • Native Land
    I love my native land with such perverse affection!
    My better judgement has no standing here.
    Not glory, won in bloody action,
    nor yet that calm demeanour, trusting and austere, ...
  • The Prayer
    When faints the heart for sorrow,
    In life's hard, darkened hour,
    My spirit breathes a wondrous prayer
    Full of love's inward power. ...
  • To The Clouds
    Clouds--ye eternal wanderers in hunting grounds of air,
    High o'er the verdant Steppes, wide through the blue of heaven--
    Coursing fraternal,--say, must ye exiled as I
    From the beloved North to the far South be driven? ...
  • The Dispute
    Once 'mid group of native mountains
    Hot dispute arose,
    Elbrus, angry, did with Kasbek
    Argument propose. ...

Poem of the day

Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey Poem
In A Silence
 by Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey

Heart to heart!
And the stillness of night and the moonlight, like hushed breathing
Silently, stealthily moving across thy hair!

O womanly face!
Tender and strong and lucent with infinite feeling,
Shrinking with startled joy, like wind-struck water,
And yet so frank, so unashamed of love!
