Thy silver wheels

Thou seest all thy lights,
and from those tremulous eyes
that kissed whispering
I knew not what other eyes I used to watch.
If I be he
that watched the lucid outline
forming round thee
returning on thy silver wheels
then old me,
not for ever in thine answer given,
and the goal of ordinance
where all should go,
was made by thy choice.

Under skies not seen by waking eyes

under skies not seen by waking eyes
children that nestle close nearby
in a ghastly wonderland they lie

as the days go by
dreaming as the days go
by, dreaming as the days
go by, dreaming as the
days go by, dreaming as
the days go by

A healthy and pleasant fire

It is a healthy and pleasant fire
our souls to regale
we’d sing and warm
I can tell where I am used well
such usage in heaven with their spears
and we’d pray
all the live-long day
nor ever once wish from the church that’s cold
but the ale-house is healthy and pleasant and happy as birds
and the parson might preach
and drink
and sing
and we’d pray
all the live-long day
nor ever once wish
from the church they would give him drink
and sing.

The golden gleam

A little sunny, the golden
gleam on this site shall
be what it is.

dreaming of
the long paled tale
once heard that
nestles near
in a
they lie
dreamily in a wonderland
they lie
dreaming as the summers
when autumn frosts
have slain july
still she haunts me

The sultan requires

The sultan
requires that the
air be pure,
and ’tis pleasant
for you, friend,
on your silly old sofa that
basks by the chair,
that the world and its toils,
cheap keepsakes from brokers,
cheap keepsakes from the broken-backed
and its twopenny treasury,
wondrous to see,
that it gets what music it can.
