And the cedar toss'd her head, and the oak stood firm in his pride;
The spring-wind pass'd through the town, through the housetops, casements, and eaves,
An...

Quare Fatigasti

Two years ago I was thinking On the changes that years bring forth;
Now I stand where I then stood drinking The gust and the salt sea froth;

With the waves subsiding and sinking,

"'Tis fixed for better, for worse," she cried,"And to-morrow the bridegroom cl...

The Romance Of Britomarte

I'll tell you a story; but pass the "jack",
And let us make merry to-night, my men
