Robert Laurence Binyon Poems

  • The Seasons' Comfort
    O Summer sun, O moving trees!
    O cheerful human noise, O busy glittering street!
    What hour shall Fate in all the future find,
    Or what delights, ever to equal these: ...
  • The Tiger-lily
    What wouldst thou with me? By what spell
    My spirit allure, absorb, compel?
    The last long beam that thou didst drink
    Is buried now on evening's brink....
  • To A Solitary Fir-tree
    Fir, that on this moor austere,
    Without kin or neighbour near,
    Utterest now bleak winter's moan

Ernest Dowson Poem

Though late it be, though lily-time be past,
Though all the summer skies be overcast,
Haply I will go down to her, some day,
And cast my rests of life before her feet,
That she may have her will of me, being so sweet
And none gainsay!
