Trumbull Stickney Earth Poems

  • 1.
    These are my murmur-laden shells that keep
    A fresh voice tho' the years be very gray.
    The wave that washed their lips and tuned their lay
    Is gone, gone with the faded ocean sweep,
  • 2.
    It 's autumn in the country I remember.

    How warm a wind blew here about the ways!
    And shadows on the hillside lay to slumber

    Shake to the wind their echo, "Not again,"--
    We see, below the sky that over-arches
    Heavy and blue, the plain
  • 4.

    Who was the Future, died full long ago.
    Knowledge which is the Past is folly. Go,
    Poor child, and be not to thyself abhorred.

Andrew Lang Poem
Melville And Coghill - The Place Of The Little Hand
 by Andrew Lang

DEAD, with their eyes to the foe,
Dead, with the foe at their feet;
Under the sky laid low
Truly their slumber is sweet,
Though the wind from the Camp of the
Slain Men blow,
And the rain on the wilderness beat.
