    Of twice ten thousand notes;
    Sing for the moon, you nightingales,

  • Love's Caution
    Tell them, when you are home again,
    How warm the air was now;
    How silent were the birds and leaves,
    And of the moon's full glow; ...
  • The Old Oak Tree
    I sit beneath your leaves, old oak,
    You mighty one of all the trees;
    Within whose hollow trunk a man
    Could stable his big horse with ease. ...
  • Easter
    What exultations in my mind,
    From the love-bite of this Easter wind!
    My head thrown back, my face doth shine
    Like yonder Sun's, but warmer mine. ...
  • When Yon Full Moon

Slain Men blow,
