Philip Freneau Evening Poems

  • 1.
    At Eutaw Springs the valiant died;
    Their limbs with dust are covered o'er;
    Weep on, ye springs, your tearful tide;
    How many heroes are no more!
  • 2.
    Under General Greene, in South Carolina,
    who fell in the action of September 8, 1781

  • 3.
    Though skilled in Latin and in Greek,
    And earning fifty cents a week,
    Such knowledge, and the income, too,
    Should teach you better what to do:
  • 4.
    Where the pheasant roosts at night,
    Lonely, drowsy, out of sight,
    Where the evening breezes sigh
    Solitary, there stray I.
