To The Reader

 Pray thee, take care, that tak'st my book in hand,
To read it well -- that is, to understand.


by Dorothy Parker

Alexandre Dumas And His Son

 Although I work, and seldom cease,
At Dumas pere and Dumas fils,
Alas, I cannot make me care
For Dumas fils and Dumas pere.


by Friedrich von Schiller

Inside And Outside

 God alone sees the heart and therefore, since he alone sees it,
Be it our care that we, too, something that's worthy may see.


by Stevie Smith

My Heart Was Full

 My heart was full of softening showers,
I used to swing like this for hours,
I did not care for war or death,
I was glad to draw my breath.


by Gelett Burgess

Floorless Room The

 I Wish that my Room had a Floor! 
I don't so Much Care for a Door, 
But this Crawling Around
Without Touching the Ground
Is Getting to be Quite a Bore!


by Gelett Burgess

The Floorless Room

 I Wish that my Room had a Floor! 
I don't so Much Care for a Door, 
But this Crawling Around
Without Touching the Ground
Is Getting to be Quite a Bore!


by Emily Dickinson

When we have ceased to care

 When we have ceased to care
The Gift is given
For which we gave the Earth
And mortgaged Heaven
But so declined in worth
'Tis ignominy now
To look upon --


by Omar Khayyam

Such as I am, Thy power created me,

Such as I am, Thy power created me,
Thy care hath kept me for a century!
Through all these years I make experiment,
If my sins or Thy mercy greater be.


by Bertolt Brecht

To Be Read In The Morning And At Night

 My love
Has told me
That he needs me.
That's why I take good care of myself Watch out where I'm going and Fear that any drop of rain Might kill me.


by Omar Khayyam

Men say the Koran holds all heavenly lore,

Men say the Koran holds all heavenly lore,
But on its pages seldom care to pore;
The lucid lines engraven on the bowl,—
That is the text they dwell on evermore.


by Omar Khayyam

Cast off dull care, O melancholy brother!

Cast off dull care, O melancholy brother!
Woo the sweet daughter of the grape, no other;
The daughter is forbidden, it is true,
But she is nicer than her lawful mother!


by Omar Khayyam

Why ponder thus the future to foresee,

Why ponder thus the future to foresee,
And jade thy brain to vain perplexity?
Cast off thy care, leave Allah's plans to him,
He formed them all without consulting thee.


by Omar Khayyam

Take care you never hold a drinking-bout

Take care you never hold a drinking-bout
With an ill-tempered, ill-conditioned lout;
He'll make a vile disturbance all night long,
And vile apologies next day, no doubt.


by Omar Khayyam

Rich men, who take to drink, the world defy

Rich men, who take to drink, the world defy
With shameless riot, and as beggars die;
Place in my ruby pipe some emerald hemp,
'Twill do as well to blind care's serpent eye.


by Edward Lear

There was a Young Lady whose bonnet

There was a Young Lady whose bonnet
Came untied when the birds sate upon it;
But she said, "I don't care! all the birds in the air
Are welcome to sit on my bonnet!"


by Omar Khayyam

Dame Fortune's smiles are full of guile, beware!

Dame Fortune's smiles are full of guile, beware!
Her scimitar is sharp to smite, take care!
If e'er she drop a sweetmeat in thy mouth,
'Tis poisonous,—to swallow it forbear!


by Omar Khayyam

Friend! trouble not yourself about your lot,

Friend! trouble not yourself about your lot,
Let futile care and sorrow be forgot;
Since this life's vesture crumbles into dust,
What matters stain of word or deed, or blot?


by Omar Khayyam

Would'st thou have fortune bow her neck to thee,

Would'st thou have fortune bow her neck to thee,
Make it thy care to feed thy soul with glee;
And hold a creed like mine, which is to drain
The cup of wine, not that of misery.


by Robert Louis Stevenson

To Madame Garschine

 WHAT is the face, the fairest face, till Care,
Till Care the graver - Care with cunning hand,
Etches content thereon and makes it fair,
Or constancy, and love, and makes it grand?


by Omar Khayyam

Ere you succumb to shocks of mortal pain,

Ere you succumb to shocks of mortal pain,
The rosy grape-juice from your wine-cup drain.
You are not gold, that, hidden in the earth,
Your friends should care to dig you up again!


by Omar Khayyam

No longer hug your grief and vain despair,

No longer hug your grief and vain despair,
But in this unjust world be just and fair;
And since the issue of the world is naught,
Think you are naught, and so shake off dull care!


by Omar Khayyam

Drink, drink this wine which gives eternal life; drink,

Drink, drink this wine which gives eternal life; drink,
for it is the source of youthful joy; it burns like fire,
but, like life's essence, drives away your care. Then
drink!
328


by Omar Khayyam

Quoth fish to duck, Twill be a sad affair,

Quoth fish to duck, «Twill be a sad affair,
If this brook leaves its channel dry and bare»;
To whom the duck, «When I am dead and roasted
The brook may run with wine for aught I care


by Omar Khayyam

'Tis naught but smoke this people's fire doth bear,

'Tis naught but smoke this people's fire doth bear,
For my well-being not a soul doth care;
With hands fate makes me lift up in despair,
I grasp men's skirts, but find no succour there.


by Omar Khayyam

No heart is there but bleeds when torn from Thee,

No heart is there but bleeds when torn from Thee,
No sight so clear but craves Thy face to see;
And though perchance Thou carest not for them,
No soul is there but pines with care for Thee.
