    The Harp of High Serenities. ...
  • L'envoi - Ballads Of A Bohemian
    We've finished up the filthy war;
    We've won what we were fighting for . . .
    (Or have we? I don't know).
    But anyway I have my wish: ...
  • The Bright Side
    Oh, one gets used to everything!
    I hum a merry song,
    And up the street and round the square
    I wheel my chair along; ...

    You who have trusted the trail;
    You who are strong to withstand,
    You who are swift to assail; ...
  • Rhymes Of A Rolling Stone - Prelude
    I sing no idle songs of dalliance days,
    No dreams Elysian inspire my rhyming;
    I have no Celia to enchant my lays,
    No pipes of Pan have set my heart to chiming. ...
