Of such a life as mine run red and gold

In quest of some forlorn retreat I rove,
For all the world is blind, and wanders from his ways.

Down the lanes of August, and the summer getting old.

The Man To Be

Some day the world will need a man of courage in a time of doubt,
And somewhere, as a little boy, that future hero plays about.
Within some humble home, no doubt, that instrument of greater things
Now climbs upon his father's knee or to his mother's garments clings.

Mother Earth shed her dress to turn green,
Flowers bloom to bear fruits to
Lose Her beauty in time.

The Sack Of The Gods

Strangers drawn from the ends of the earth, jewelled and plumed were we;

Under the stars beyond our stars where the new-forged meteors glow,
Hotly we stormed Valhalla, a million years ago!

Through which our brother's journey lay,
