Samuel Griswold Goodrich Poems

  • The Sea-bird
    Far, far o'er the deep is my island throne,
    Where the sea-gull roams and reigns alone;
    Where nought is seen but the beetling rock,
    And nought is heard but the ocean-shock, ...
  • A Dream Of Life
    When I was young long, long ago
    I dreamed myself among the flowers;
    And fancy drew the picture so,
    They seemed like Fairies in their bowers. ...
  • Thoughts At Sea
    Here is the boundless ocean, there the sky,
    O'er-arching broad and blue
    Telling of God and heaven how deep, how high,
    How glorious and true! ...

    The shadows o'er the landscape creep;
    A drowsy sound the woodland fills,
    And nature folds her arms to sleep: ...
  • Perennials
    Life is a journey, and its fairest flowers
    Lie in our path beneath pride's trampling feet;
    Oh, let us stoop to virtue's humble bowers,
    And gather those, which, faded, still are sweet. ...

William Cowper Poem
Denner's Old Woman
 by William Cowper

In this mimic form of a matron in years,
How plainly the pencil of Denner appears!
The matron herself, in whose old age we see
Not a trace of decline, what a wonder is she!
No dimness of eye, and no cheek hanging low,
No wrinkle, or deep-furrow-d frown on the brow!
Her forehead indeed is here circled around
With locks like the ribbon with which they are bound;
