...innocent faces clean
The children walking two & two in red & blue & green
Grey headed beadles walked before with wands as white as snow
Till into the high dome of Pauls they like Thames waters flow

O what a multitude they seemed these flowers of London town
Seated in companies they sit with radiance all their own
The hum of multitudes was there but multitudes of lambs
Thousands of little boys & girls raising their innocent hands

Now like a mighty wind they raise to heaven ...Read More

...I rolled you in the heather?
My! but you were the bonny lass
 And we were awfu' late for class.

Your locks are now as white as snow,
 And you are ripe and wrinkled,
A grandmother ten times or so,
 Yet how your blue eyes twinkled
At me above your spectacles,
 Recalling naughty neck-tickles!

It must be fifty years today
 I left you for the Yukon;
You haven't changed - your just as gay
 And just as sweet to look on.
But can you see in this old fool
 The lad who made yo...Read More

...away, and my brain half tumbling through;
Lying there with a chest that heaves like a bellows up and down,
And a cheek as white as snow on a grave, and lips that are coffee brown.

And confound him, too! He wears, like me, on his finger a wedding ring,
And around his neck, as around my own, by a greasy bit of string,
A locket hangs with a woman's face, and I turn it about to see:
Just as I thought . . . on the other side the faces of children three;
Clustered...Read More

...him shall heavenly arms enfold,
Among the saints he shall be seen
Performing on a harp of gold.

He shall be washed as white as snow,
By all the martyr’d virgins kist,
While the True Church remains below
Wrapt in the old miasmal mist....Read More

...the battle with delight.

There was Harrison, who made his pile when Pardon won the cup,
The old man with his hair as white as snow;
But few could ride beside him when his blood was fairly up—
He would go wherever horse and man could go.
And Clancy of the Overflow came down to lend a hand;
No better horseman ever held the reins;
For never horse could throw him while the saddle girths would stand—
He had learnt to ride while droving on the plains.

And one was the...Read More

by Paterson, Andrew Barton
But then we started a long dry run on a road we did not know, 
In the blinding gleam of the noonday sun, with the dust as white as snow. 

For twenty minutes without a drink we strove with our dreadful thirst, 
But the chauffeur pointed and said, "I think ----," I answered, "I saw it first!" 
A pub with a good old-fashioned air, with bottles behind the blind, 
And a golden tint in the barmaid's hair -- I could see it all -- in my mind -- 

Ere ever the motor ceased its r...Read More

...d stretch'd his clouds over Jerusalem; 

For Adam, a mouldering skeleton 
Lay bleach'd on the garden of Eden; 
And Noah as white as snow 
On the mountains of Ararat. 

Then the thunders of Urizen bellow'd aloud 
From his woven darkness above. 

Orc raging in European darkness 
Arose like a pillar of fire above the Alps 
Like a serpent of fiery flame! 
The sullen Earth 

Forth from the dead dust rattling bones to bones 
Join: shaking convuls'd the shivring cla...Read More
