Not because you were not my type
But I didn't want to make you cheap

that you fast growing up.
Soon you, and many of your generation
will graduate from childhood

Christmas In India

Dim dawn behind the tamerisks-the sky is saffron-yellow-
As the women in the village grind the corn,
And the parrots seek the riverside, each calling to his fellow
That the Day, the staring Easter Day is born.

Dim, as the borrow'd beams of moon and stars
To lonely, weary, wand'ring travellers,
Is reason to the soul; and as on high,
Those rolling fires discover but the sky

Frances Ellen Watkins Harper
Be Courteous

Ah, yes; why not? Is one more adventitious born
Than others-shekels richer, honors fuller, and all that-
That he can pass his fellows by with lofty scorn,
Nor even show this slight regard-the lifting of the hat?

Hattie Howard
The Island

Does the wind sing in your ears at night, in the town,
Rattling the windows and doors of the cheap-built place?
Do you hear its song as it flies over marsh and down?
Do you feel the kiss that the wind leaves here on my face?

How aches her every limb!

Sonnet 110: Alas, 'tis True, I Have Gone Here And There

Alas, 'tis true, I have gone here and there,
And made myself a motley to the view,
Gored mine own thoughts, sold cheap what is most dear,
Made old offences of affections new.

what I'd been breathing in all day at work.
I'd sleep in a chair or take a good stiff drink,
anything to get a few hours rest.

Giuseppe Gioacchino Belli
Accordion

Some carol of the banjo, to its measure keeping time;
Of viol or of lute some make a song.
My battered old accordion, you're worthy of a rhyme,
You've been my friend and comforter so long.

Linking curious fancies, modern, mediaeval, and antiqueâ??
Suddenly the sun descended, and a radiance ruby-splendid,
With the gleam of water blended, thrilled my sensitive physiqueâ??

Films

I HAVE kept all, not one is thrown away, not one given to the ragman, not one thrust in a corner with a 'P-f-f.'
The red ones and the blue, the long ones in stripes, and each of the little black and white checkered ones.
Keep them: I tell my heart: keep them another year, another ten years: they will be wanted again.
They came once, they came easy, they came like a first white flurry of snow in late October,

Draw up the papers, lawyer, and make 'em good and stout;

Must pull in single harness for the rest of our nat'ral life.

Alone, alone with God's grey earth that seems
Pulse of my pulse and consort of my dreams.

In Italy, where this sort of thing can occur,
I had a vision once - though you understand
It was nothing at all like Dante's, or the visions of saints,
And perhaps not a vision at all. I was with some friends,

With your many handsome buildings, and lovely links so green,
And the first buildings I may mention are the Courthouse and Town Hall,

The Iliad: Book 21

Now when they came to the ford of the full-flowing river Xanthus,
begotten of immortal Jove, Achilles cut their forces in two: one

the Achaeans had taken when flying panic-stricken on the preceding day

We are members of the Wallaby Brigade.

Never Bite A Married Woman On The Thigh

Never bite a married woman on the thigh oh my

And when she gets home at night her man will ask her why
Then she'll say it's just a birthmark or some other silly lie
