Norman Rowland Gale Face Poems

  • 1.
    All work is over at the farm
    And men and maids are ripe for glee;
    Love slips among them sly and warm
    Or calls them to the chestnut-tree.
  • 2.
    NATURE and he went ever hand in hand
    Across the hills and down the lonely lane;
    They captured starry shells upon the strand
    And lay enchanted by the musing main.
  • 3.
    O might I leave this grassy place
    For spreading foam about my feet!
    The splendid spray upon my face,

    Beneath this great blue shell of sky
    With apple-bloom and pear:

    With wisdom learnt from ancient teachers,
    Now winter time once more is here,

  • 7.
    If you passed her in your city
    You would call her badly dressed,
    But the faded homespun covers
    Such a heart in such a breast!

Success And Failure
 by Edgar Albert Guest
