Too many listeners were nigh;
And yet my timid glance read plainly
The language of her speaking eye.

When everything's dead
and you're the only survivor.
When everything's gone
with no hope to go on.

The Silent Lover (i)

Passions are liken'd best to floods and streams:
The shallow murmur, but the deep are dumb;
So, when affection yields discourse, it seems
The bottom is but shallow whence they come.

Moving On

It cost me, what with my daft management,

Was averagely happy, I'll be bound.

Absorbs small worlds and makes them all his own,

Each outside purpose which my life has known.

Those rolling fires discover but the sky

My heart's sorrows to impart.

And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining,
Though the sky be too dark for dim eyes to discover
The gold-cups and daisies fair blooming thereunder,

Edgar Albert Guest
90 North

At home, in my flannel gown, like a bear to its floe,
I clambered to bed; up the globe's impossible sides
I sailed all night—till at last, with my black beard,
My furs and my dogs, I stood at the northern pole.

Only the swirl of the surges livid,
The seas that climb and the surfs that comb.

He moved as quiet as a mouse.
