William Cosmo Monkhouse Face Poems

  • 1.
    Part I.

    A couple old sat o'er the fire,
    And they were bent and gray;
  • 2.
    There was a young lady of Niger
    Who smiled as she rode on a tiger;
    They returned from the ride
    With the lady inside,
  • 3.
    PLAY me a march, low-tonâ??d and slowâ??a march for a silent tread,
    Fit for the wandering feet of one who dreams of the silent dead,
    Lonely, between the bones below and the souls that are overhead.

  • 4.
    TO the Wake of Oâ??Hara
    Came company;
    All St. Patrickâ??s Alley
    Was there to see,
  • 5.
    HOW slowly creeps the hand of Time
    On the old clockâ??s green-mantled face!
    Yea, slowly as those ivies climb,
    The hours roll round with patient pace;
  • 6.
    CHILDREN indeed are weâ??children that wait
    Within a wondrous dwelling, while on high
    Stretch the sad vapors and the voiceless sky;
    The house is fair, yet all is desolate
  • 7.
    I would not wish thee other than thou art;
    I love thee, love, so well in every part,
    That had I power to change thee
    In form or face or mind,
  • 8.
    NOW, sitting by her side, worn out with weeping,
    Behold, I fell to sleep, and had a vision,
    Wherein I heard a wondrous Voice intoning:

  • 9.
    â??T WAS the body of Judas Iscariot
    Lay in the Field of Blood;
    â??T was the soul of Judas Iscariot
    Beside the body stood.

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.
