To greet every other creature.

Drowned sunbeams and the perfume April blows;

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.

A Good Soldier

He writes to us most every day, and how his letters thrill us!
I can't describe the joys with which his quaint expressions fill us.
He says the military life is not of his selection,
He's only soldiering to-day to give the Flag protection.

Who, motion past, were nevertheless not dead.

Weary I am, listen you all those hearing me,
Here I stand ahead, not with delightful heart.

And all those span I bestowed for felicity.

Humility

I met upon a narrow way,
Dead weary from his toil,
A fellow warped and gnarled and grey,
Who reeked of sweat and soil.

At that time, you want to be humble.

Should rob the living virtue of its praise;
O foolish Muses! that with zeal aspire
To deck the cold insensate shrine with bays.

The Lily

The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
The humble sheep a threat'ning horn:
While the Lily white shall in love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a threat stain her beauty bright.

Beside a Jacqueminotâ??s royal splendour,
And both in my ladyâ??s boudoir lay.

Above the vine-clad shelves,
