Barnacled white and weeded brown
And slimed beneath to a beautiful green,
These wet rocks where the tide went down

And see the way you lived, but I don't know!

A Smuggler's Song

Don't go drawing back the blind, or looking in the street.

Watch the wall, my darling, while the Gentlemen go by!

Put on, to welcome spring, their best attire,

The Scholars

"Oh, show me how a rose can shut and be a bud again!"

And entered them at the landward schools as though no war had been.

And the cloudy days of autumn and of winter cometh on
I tried to call them back but unbidden they are gone
Far away from heart and eye and for ever far away

I Don-t Remember The Word I Wished To Say

Who loved the very ground on which he trod.
