Yet thee not beholding my eyes;
Here comes the noon;

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

Seconds of death and judgment.

A Smuggler’s Song

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

Wouldst thou be taught, when sleep has taken flight,
By a sure voice that can most sweetly tell,
How far off yet a glimpse of morning light,
And if to lure the truant back be well,

Guessing Time

It's guessing time at our house; every evening after tea
We start guessing what old Santa's going to leave us on our tree.
Everyone of us holds secrets that the others try to steal,
And that eyes and lips are plainly having trouble to conceal.

Remembrances

Summer pleasures they are gone like to visions every one
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

John Clare
Joy

Joy, what could be more eperetising than the Joy of life. what is life without joy. Love it can be given and it can never be taken. What is life like without being loved.

There is a million of things that I would rather do than love another. I would count stars day to day admiring each and everyone of them. I am greedy in nature. I do nothing which is temporary. my main reason why I would spend a lifetime counting stars. No matter how many I count each day the end is never near .

Till the day my little boy

From the aching heart that shuttered your mood to the fear that after kicks in
It's useless fighting it off,

Rudyard Kipling

And men who strutted under braid and lace

The Open Steeplechase

I had ridden over hurdles up the country once or twice,
By the side of Snowy River with a horse they called 'The Ace'.

Got a fall and broke his shoulder, so they nabbed me in a trice,

It stirs the forest darkness, the darkness of his beard,

And siphoned off at the other, and so

Afternoon Tea

As I was saying . . . (No, thank you; I never take cream with my tea;
Cows weren't allowed in the trenches-got out of the habit, y'see.)
As I was saying, our Colonel leaped up like a youngster of ten:
“Come on, lads!” he shouts, “and we'll show 'em,” and he sprang to the head of the men.

And found under shadows thrown on still waters

In granite-lipped basins,
Where iris dabble their feet

A simple old Thanksgiving Day, like those of long ago,

It could be the name of a prehistoric beast
that roamed the Paleozoic earth, rising up
on its hind legs to show off its large vocabulary,
or some lover in a myth who is metamorphosed into a book.
