The Norman Boy

High on a broad unfertile tract of forest-skirted Down,
Nor kept by Nature for herself, nor made by man his own,
From home and company remote and every playful joy,
Served, tending a few sheep and goats, a ragged Norman Boy.

We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!

A Good Soldier

He writes to us most every day, and how his letters thrill us!

Back up a stream of radiance to the sky,
And back through history up the stream of time.

The world will wail thee like a makeless wife.

Behind, the night of Erebus hung entire;
And deserts gloomed or glimmered on each hand.

Cold-blooded, though with red your blood be graced,

In wild, wood-shady dell to stay for hours.
Twould soften hearts if they were hard as stone
To see glad butterflies and smiling flowers.

Deep treasured thro' life, in my heart they shall stay;
Like music, whose charm in the soul lingers yet,
When its sounds from the ear have long melted away.
