Thomas Shadwell Poems

  • 1.
    Your awful voice I hear and I obey,
    Brother to Jove and monarch of the sea.
    Come down, my blusterers, swell no more,
    Your stormy rage give o'er.
  • 2.
    Halcyon days, now wars are ending.
    You shall find where-e'er you sail
    Tritons all the while attending
    With a kind and gentle gale.
  • 3.
    Love quickly is pall'd,
    Tho' with labour 'tis gain'd;
    Wine never does cloy
    Tho' with ease 'tis obtain'd.
  • 4.
    Nymphs and shepherds, come away.
    In this grove let's sport and play,
    For this is Flora's holiday,
    Sacred to ease and happy love,
  • 5.
    Prepare, prepare, new Guests draw near
    And on the brink of Hell appear.
    Kindle fresh Flame of Sulphur there.
    Assemble all ye Fiends,
  • 6.
    Dear pretty youth, unveil your eyes,
    How can you sleep when I am by?
    Were I with you all night to be,
    Methinks I could from sleep be free.
  • 7.
    Love in their little veins inspires
    their cheerful notes, their soft desires.
    While heat makes buds and blossoms spring,
    those pretty couples love and sing.

Charles Baudelaire Poem
Le Voyage
 by Charles Baudelaire

A Maxime Du Camp

Pour l'enfant, amoureux de cartes et d'estampes,
L'univers est égal à son vaste appétit.
Ah! que le monde est grand à la clarté des lampes!
Aux yeux du souvenir que le monde est petit!
