Blind Love – Sonnet 148

O me! what eyes hath Love put in my head Which have no correspondence with true sight; Or if they have, where is my judgment fled That censures falsely what they see aright?If that be fair whereon my false eyes dote, What means the world to say it is...

A Dream Within A Dream

Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow- You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it...

To My Mother

Because I feel that, in the Heavens above, The angels, whispering to one another, Can find, among their burning terms of love, None so devotional as that of ‘Mother,’ Therefore by that dear name I long have called you— You who are more than mother unto me, And fill my heart...

Meeting at Night

The gray sea, and the long black land; And the yellow half-moon large and low; And the startling little waves, that leap In fiery ringlets from their sleep, As I gain the cove with pushing prow, And quench its speed in the slushy sand.Then a mile of warm, sea-scented beach; Three...

The Rose-Bush

A child sleeps under a rose-bush fair, The buds swell out in the soft May air; Sweetly it rests, and on dream-wings flies To play with the angels in Paradise. And the years glide by.A Maiden stands by the rose-bush fair, The dewy blossoms perfume the air; She presses her hand...

Above the Clouds

’Mid white Sierras, that slope to the sea, Lie turbulent lands. Go dwell in the skies, And the thundering tongues of Yosemitè Shall persuade you to silence, and you shall be wise.I but sing for the love of song and the few Who loved me first and shall love...
