Norman Rowland Gale Long Poems

  • 1.
    Last night some yellow letters fell
    From out a scrip I found by chance;
    Among them was the silent ghost,
    The spirit of my first romance:
  • 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.
    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.
  • 4.
    In summer, when the grass is thick, if Mother has the time,
    She shows me with her pencil how a poet makes a rhyme,
    And often she is sweet enough to choose a leafy nook,
    Where I cuddle up so closely when she reads the Fairy-book.
  • 5.

  • 6.
    On HelenĂ¢??s heart the day were night!
    But I may not adventure there:
    Here breast is guarded by a right,
    And she is true as fair.
  • 7.
    I'm greedy by nature, and often in vain
    Have lingered too long o'er the succulent hare,
    Accepting the jelly, ignoring the pain,
    Intent on receiving far more than my share.
