The Message

Waking from tender sleep,
My neighbour's little
Put out his baby hand to me,

Indian Summer

A soft veil dims the tender skies,
And half conceals from pensive eyes The bronzing tokens of the fall;
A calmness broods upon the hills,
And summer's parting dream distills A charm of silence over all

Portrait and Reality

If on the closed curtain of my sight My fancy paints thy portrait far away, I see thee still the same, by night or day;

When Tulips Bloom

I When tulips bloom in Union Square,
And timid breaths of vernal air Go wandering down the dusty town,
Like children lost in Vanity Fair;

The restless, deep, dividing sea That flows and foams from shore to shore,
Calls to its sunbur...

Dulcis Memoria

Long, long ago I heard a little song,  (Ah, was it long ago, or yesterday
)So lowly, slowly wound the tune along,  That far into my heart it found the way:

The Glory of Ships

The glory of ships is an old, old song, since the days when the sea-rovers ran In their open boats through the roaring surf, and the spread of the world began;

And on the curving capes of ever...
