 In spring rain
a pretty girl

That pretty girl

 That pretty girl--
munching and rustling
the wrapped-up rice cake.

 A girl whose cheeks are covered with paint
Has an advantage with me over one whose ain't.

by Emily Dickinson

Bliss is the plaything of the child --

 Bliss is the plaything of the child --
The secret of the man
The sacred stealth of Boy and Girl
Rebuke it if we can

Words of Comfort to Be Scratched on a Mirror

 Helen of Troy had a wandering glance;
Sappho's restriction was only the sky;
Ninon was ever the chatter of France;
But oh, what a good girl am I!

by Omar Khayyam

Where'er you see a rose or tulip bed,

Where'er you see a rose or tulip bed,
Know that a mighty monarch's blood was shed
And where the violet rears her purple tuft,
Be sure a black-moled girl hath laid her head.

by Edward Lear

There was a Young Girl of Majorca

There was a Young Girl of Majorca,
Whose Aunt was a very fast walker;
She walked seventy miles, and leaped fifteen stiles,
Which astonished that Girl of Majorca.

by Emily Dickinson

A Moth the hue of this

 A Moth the hue of this
Haunts Candles in Brazil.
Nature's Experience would make Our Reddest Second pale.
Nature is fond, I sometimes think, Of Trinkets, as a Girl.

by Sappho

To Andromeda

That country girl has witched your wishes 
all dressed up in her country clothes
and she hasn't got the sense
to hitch her rags above her ankles. 

--Translated by Jim Powell 

by Emily Dickinson

Ribbons of the Year --

 Ribbons of the Year --
Multitude Brocade --
Worn to Nature's Party once

Then, as flung aside
As a faded Bead
Or a Wrinkled Pearl
Who shall charge the Vanity
Of the Maker's Girl?

by Mother Goose

The Little Girl With A Curl


There was a little girl who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead;
When she was good, she was very, very good,
And when she was bad she was horrid.

by Robert Burns

472. To the beautiful Miss Eliza J——n on her principles of Liberty and Eqality

 HOW, Liberty! girl, can it be by thee nam’d?
Equality too! hussey, art not asham’d?
Free and Equal indeed, while mankind thou enchainest,
And over their hearts a proud Despot so reignest.

by Li Po

Autumn River Song

 The moon shimmers in green water.
White herons fly through the moonlight.
The young man hears a girl gathering water-chestnuts: into the night, singing, they paddle home together.

by Ellis Parker Butler

Valentine To The Girl In Black

 In hand I take this pen of mine
To write you, sweet, a valentine;
I’d take your dainty hand instead,
But—you’re a drawing—I am wed—
And that is why, you understand,
I only take my pen in hand.

by Mother Goose

The Girl In The Lane

The girl in the lane, that couldn't speak plain,
  Cried, "Gobble, gobble, gobble":
The man on the hill that couldn't stand still,
  Went hobble hobble, hobble.

by Oscar Wilde

With A Copy Of A House Of Pomegranates

 Go, little book,
To him who, on a lute with horns of pearl,
Sang of the white feet of the Golden Girl:
And bid him look
Into thy pages: it may hap that he
May find that golden maidens dance through thee.

by Mother Goose

Little Girl And Queen


"Little girl, little girl, where have you been?"
"Gathering roses to give to the Queen.
"Little girl, little girl, what gave she you?"
"She gave me a diamond as big as my shoe.

by Omar Khayyam

In springtime let me sit upon the edge of a broad

In springtime let me sit upon the edge of a broad
field with one fair girl, and wine in plenty if wine is at
hand. Though this may culpable be thought, I should
be worse than any dog did I not dream of Paradise.

by Richard Brautigan

Mating Saliva

 A girl in a green mini-
skirt, not very pretty, walks
down the street.
A businessman stops, turns to stare at her ass that looks like a moldy refrigerator.
There are now 200,000,000 people in America.

by Spike Milligan

Mirror Mirror

 A young spring-tender girl
combed her joyous hair
'You are very ugly' said the mirror.
But, on her lips hung a smile of dove-secret loveliness, for only that morning had not the blind boy said, 'You are beautiful'?

by Omar Khayyam

This jug (earthen vessel) has been, like me, a loving

This jug [earthen vessel] has been, like me, a loving
and unhappy creature; it has sighed for a lock of some
young beauty's hair; this handle that you see attached to
its neck was an amorous arm passed about the neck of
some girl.

by Spike Milligan

Goodbye S.S

 Go away girl, go away 
and let me pack my dreams 
Now where did I put those yesteryears 
made up with broken seams 
Where shall I sweep the pieces 
my God they still look new 
There's a taxi waiting at the door 
but there's only room for you

by Robert Herrick


 Some ask'd me where the Rubies grew:
And nothing I did say,
But with my finger pointed to
The lips of Julia.
Some ask'd how Pearls did grow, and where: Then spoke I to my girl, To part her lips, and shew me there The quarrelets of Pearl.

by Emily Dickinson

Ive heard an Organ talk sometimes

 I've heard an Organ talk, sometimes
In a Cathedral Aisle,
And understood no word it said --
Yet held my breath, the while --

And risen up -- and gone away,
A more Berdardine Girl --
Yet -- know not what was done to me
In that old Chapel Aisle.

by William Butler Yeats

On Being Asked For A War Poem

 I think it better that in times like these
A poet's mouth be silent, for in truth
We have no gift to set a statesman right;
He has had enough of medding who can please
A young girl in the indolence of her youth,
Or an old man upon a winter's night.
