by Emily Dickinson

Oh honey of an hour

 Oh, honey of an hour,
I never knew thy power,
Prohibit me
Till my minutest dower,
My unfrequented flower,
Deserving be.


by Emily Dickinson

Estranged from Beauty -- none can be --

 Estranged from Beauty -- none can be --
For Beauty is Infinity --
And power to be finite ceased
Before Identity was leased.


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 Omar Khayyam

O Thou who givest sight to emmet's eyes,

O Thou who givest sight to emmet's eyes,
And strength to puny limbs of feeble flies,
To Thee we will ascribe Almighty power,
And not base, unbecoming qualities.


by Omar Khayyam

If Allah wills me not to will aright,

If Allah wills me not to will aright,
How can I frame my will to will aright?
Each single act I will must needs be wrong,
Since none but He has power to will aright.


by Omar Khayyam

Depart we must! what boots it then to be,

Depart we must! what boots it then to be,
To walk in vain desires continually?
Nay, but if heaven vouchsafe no place of rest,
What power to cease our wanderings have we?


by Omar Khayyam

They who by genius, and by power of brain,

They who by genius, and by power of brain,
The rank of man's enlighteners attain,
Not even they emerge from this dark night,
But tell their dreams, and fall asleep again.


by Robert Louis Stevenson

So Live So Love So Use That Fragile Hour

 SO live, so love, so use that fragile hour,
That when the dark hand of the shining power
Shall one from other, wife or husband, take,
The poor survivor may not weep and wake.


by Omar Khayyam

Had I the power great Allah to advise,

Had I the power great Allah to advise,
I'd bid him sweep away this earth and skies,
And build a better, where, unclogged and free,
The clear soul might achieve her high emprise.


by Omar Khayyam

Wine's power is known to wine-bibbers alone,

Wine's power is known to wine-bibbers alone,
To narrow heads and hearts 'tis never shown;
I blame not them who never felt its force,
For, till they feel it, how can it be known.


by Wanda Phipps

L'ENVOI

Oh, awful Power whose works repel
The marvel of the earth's designs,—
I 'll hie me otherwhere to dwell,
[Pg 205]Arcadia has trolley lines.


by Emily Dickinson

To make Routine a Stimulus

 To make Routine a Stimulus
Remember it can cease --
Capacity to Terminate
Is a Specific Grace --
Of Retrospect the Arrow
That power to repair
Departed with the Torment
Become, alas, more fair --


by Emily Dickinson

One thing of it we borrow

 One thing of it we borrow
And promise to return --
The Booty and the Sorrow
Its Sweetness to have known --
One thing of it we covet --
The power to forget --
The Anguish of the Avarice
Defrays the Dross of it --


by Omar Khayyam

I am such as Thy power has made me. I have lived a

I am such as Thy power has made me. I have lived a
hundred years filled with Thy benevolence and benefits.
I would like still a hundred years to commit sin and to
see if the sum of my faults outweighed Thy pity.


by Emily Dickinson

To be alive -- is Power --

 To be alive -- is Power --
Existence -- in itself --
Without a further function --
Omnipotence -- Enough --

To be alive -- and Will!
'Tis able as a God --
The Maker -- of Ourselves -- be what --
Such being Finitude!


by Emily Dickinson

The Clovers simple Fame

 The Clover's simple Fame
Remembered of the Cow --
Is better than enameled Realms
Of notability.
Renown perceives itself And that degrades the Flower -- The Daisy that has looked behind Has compromised its power --


by Emily Dickinson

Apparently with no surprise

 Apparently with no surprise
To any happy Flower
The Frost beheads it at its play --
In accidental power --
The blonde Assassin passes on --
The Sun proceeds unmoved
To measure off another Day
For an Approving God.


by Emily Dickinson

I took my power in my hand

 I took my power in my hand
And went AGAINST the world
'Twas not so much as David had
But I was twice as bold
I aimed by pebble, but myself
Was ALL the one that fell
Was it Goliath was too large
Or was myself too small?


by Jean Valentine

To Plath To Sexton

 So what use was poetry
to a white empty house?

Wolf, swan, hare,
in by the fire.
And when your tree crashed through your house, what use then was all your power? It was the use of you.
It was the flower.


by Emily Dickinson

That short -- potential stir

 That short -- potential stir
That each can make but once --
That Bustle so illustrious
'Tis almost Consequence --

Is the eclat of Death --
Oh, thou unknown Renown
That not a Beggar would accept
Had he the power to spurn --


by Emily Dickinson

A Planted Life -- diversified

 A Planted Life -- diversified
With Gold and Silver Pain
To prove the presence of the Ore
In Particles -- 'tis when

A Value struggle -- it exist --
A Power -- will proclaim
Although Annihilation pile
Whole Chaoses on Him --


by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

MY ONLY PROPERTY

 I FEEL that I'm possess'd of nought,
Saving the free unfetterd thought

Which from my bosom seeks to flow,
And each propitious passing hour
That suffers me in all its power

A loving fate with truth to know.
1814.


by Emily Dickinson

Let me not mar that perfect Dream

 Let me not mar that perfect Dream
By an Auroral stain
But so adjust my daily Night
That it will come again.
Not when we know, the Power accosts -- The Garment of Surprise Was all our timid Mother wore At Home -- in Paradise.


by Emily Dickinson

Power is a familiar growth --

 Power is a familiar growth --
Not foreign -- not to be --
Beside us like a bland Abyss
In every company --
Escape it -- there is but a chance --
When consciousness and clay
Lean forward for a final glance --
Disprove that and you may --
