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,
    The flying brine itself were sweet
  • 4.
    Shy maids have haunts of still delight,
    The lover glades he never tells;
    And one is mine where mass the bright
    And odoured chimes of foxglove-bells.
  • 5.
    IT hardly seems that he is dead,
    So strange it is that we are here
    Beneath this great blue shell of sky
    With apple-bloom and pear:
  • 6.
    Excuse me, Sweetheart, if I smear,
    With wisdom learnt from ancient teachers,
    Now winter time once more is here,
    This grease upon your lengthy features!
  • 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!

Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey Poem
June Night In Washington
 by Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey

The scent of honeysuckle,
Drugging the twilight
With its sweet opiate of lovers' dreams!
The last red glow of the setting sun
On the red brick wall
Of the neighboring house,
And the scramble of red roses over it!
