~*~ A Petition to Time~*~ Barry Cornwall (Bryan Waller Procter)

TOUCH us gently, Time!

    Let us glide adown thy stream

Gently — as we sometimes glide

    Through a quiet dream!

Humble voyagers are we,

Husband, wife, and children three —

(One is lost — an angel, fled

To the azure overhead!)

*

Touch us gently, Time!

    We’ve not proud nor soaring wings;

Our ambition, our content,

    Lies in simple things.

Humble voyagers are we,

O’er life’s dim unsounded sea,

Seeking only some calm clime;

Touch us gently, gentle Time!

~*~ O that ’twere possible ~*~ By: – Alfred Lord Tennyson. 1809–1892

O THAT ’twere possible

After long grief and pain

To find the arms of my true love

Round me once again!

A shadow flits before me,

Not thou, but like to thee:

Ah, Christ! that it were possible

For one short hour to see

The souls we loved, that they might tell us

What and where they be!

~*~ Death ~*~ By: – John Donne

           DEATH, be not proud, though some have called thee

          Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so:

          For those whom thou think’st thou dost overthrow

          Die not, poor Death; nor yet canst thou kill me.

          From Rest and Sleep, which but thy picture be,

          Much pleasure, then from thee much more must flow;

          And soonest our best men with thee do go—

          Rest of their bones and souls’ delivery!

          Thou’rt slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men,

          And dost with poison, war, and sickness dwell;

          And poppy or charms can make us sleep as well

          And better than thy stroke. Why swell’st thou then?

              One short sleep past, we wake eternally,

              And Death shall be no more: Death, thou shalt die!

~*~ Imitation ~*~ By: – Edgar Allan Poe

A dark unfathomed tide

Of interminable pride –

A mystery, and a dream,

Should my early life seem;

I say that dream was fraught

With a wild and waking thought

Of beings that have been,

Which my spirit hath not seen,

Had I let them pass me by,

With a dreaming eye!

Let none of earth inherit

That vision of my spirit;

Those thoughts I would control,

As a spell upon his soul:

For that bright hope at last

And that light time have past,

And my worldly rest hath gone

With a sigh as it passed on:

I care not though it perish

With a thought I then did cherish.

~*~ There Will Come Soft Rains ~*~ By: – Sarah Teasdale

There will come soft rains and the

smell of the ground,

And swallows circling with their

shimmering sound;

*

And frogs in the pools singing at

night,

And wild plum-trees in tremulous

white;

*

Robins will wear their feathery fire

Whistling their whims on a low

fence-wire;

*

And not one will know of the war,

not one

Will care at last when it done.

*

Not one would mind, neither bird

nor tree

If mankind perished utterly;

*

And Spring herself, when she woke

at dawn,

Would scarcely know that we were gone.
