One of those blue official things;

The moon, a silver wafer, clings.

Alligating me of dire consequences,

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

But make allowance for their doubting too:

No matter how you stop it,

Or someone has stolen it leaving me alone.

Where crimson-blank the windows flare;
By my own work, before the night,

Sonnet 002: When Forty Winters Shall Besiege Thy Brow

And dig deep trenches in thy beauty's field,
Thy youth's proud livery so gazed on now,
Will be a tattered weed of small worth held.

If I had youth I'd bid the world to try me;
I'd answer every challenge to my will.
Though mountains stood in silence to defy me,
I'd try to make them subject to my skill.

In Spring the streets were green with grass and trees.
Sorrowing over the times, the flowers are weeping.
The birds startled my heart in fear of departing.

At Christmas

A man is at his finest towards the finish of the year;
He is almost what he should be when the Christmas season is here;
Then he's thinking more of others than he's thought the months before,
And the laughter of his children is a joy worth toiling for.

Nothing is easy, nothing is certain,
Only the sea, the sun and the sky makes me happy and i think,
That's worthy to fight and for life to win.

Who loved the very ground on which he trod.

Another spring renews the soldier's toil,
And finds me vacant in the rural cave.

Elegy Iv. Ophilia's Urn. To Mr. Graves

What dreary forms has magic Fear survey'd!
What shrouded spectres Superstition seen!

While I, least worthy to survive, persist in living on.
