Beauty

By: Abraham Cowley

Poetry

Excerpt: after the Anacreontea // LIBERAL Nature did dispence // To all things Arms for their defence; // And some she arms with sin'ewy force, // And some with swiftness in the course; // Some with hard Hoofs, or forked claws, // And some with Horns, or tusked jaws. // And some with Scales, and some with Wings, // And some with Teeth, and some with Stings. // Wisdom to Man she did afford, // Wisdom for Shield, and Wit for Sword. // What to beauteous Woman-kind, // What ...

Hymn

By: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Poetry

Excerpt: Sung at the Completion of the Concord Monument, April 19, 1836 // BY the rude bridge that arched the flood, // Their flag to April's breeze unfurled, // Here once the embattled farmers stood // And fired the shot heard round the world. // The foe long since in silence slept; // Alike the conqueror silent sleeps; // And Time the ruined bridge has swept // Down the dark stream that seaward creeps. // On this green bank, by this soft stream, // We set today a votiv...

Young Adventure

By: Stephen Vincent Benet

Poetry

Excerpt: A Minor Poet // I am a shell. From me you shall not hear // The splendid tramplings of insistent drums, // The orbed gold of the viol's voice that comes, // Heavy with radiance, languorous and clear. // Yet, if you hold me close against the ear, // A dim, far whisper rises clamorously, // The thunderous beat and passion of the sea, // The slow surge of the tides that drown the mere. // Others with subtle hands may pluck the strings, // Making even Love in music ...

I have said it twice: // That alone should encourage the crew. // Just the place for a Snark! I have said it thrice: // What I tell you three times is true.'' // The crew was complete: it included a Boots- // A maker of Bonnets and Hoods- // A Barrister, brought ...

The Song of Elf

By: Gilbert K. Chesterton

Poetry

Excerpt: The Song of Elf // Blue-eyed was Elf the minstrel, // With womanish hair and ring, // Yet heavy was his hand on sword, // Though light upon the string. // And as he stirred the strings of the harp // To notes but four or five, // The heart of each man moved in him // Like a babe buried alive. // And they felt the land of the folk-songs // Spread southward of the Dane // And they heard the good Rhine flowing // In the heart of all Allemagne. // They felt the land...
