by Swinburne, Algernon Charles
...ur word kept growing,
Sweet at least was the seed.

Men bring you love-offerings of tears,
And sorrow the kiss that assuages,
And slaves the hate-offering of wrongs,
And time the thanksgiving of years,
And years the thanksgiving of ages;
I bring you my handful of songs.

If a perfume be left, if a bloom,
Let it live till Italia be risen,
To be strewn in the dust of her car
When her voice shall awake from the tomb
England, and France from her prison,
Sisters, a star by...Read More

by Robinson, Edwin Arlington
That once had power to sound him, 
And Love, that will not let him be 
The Judas that she found him, 
Her pride assuages her almost 
As if it were alone the cost-- 
He sees that he will not be lost, 
And waits, and looks around him.

A sense of ocean and old trees 
Envelops and allures him; 
Tradition, touching all he sees, 
Beguiles and reassures him. 
And all her doubts of what he says 
Are dimmed by what she knows of days, 
Till even Prejudice delays

...out of years.

But there lives another sound, 
More compelling, more profound; 
There's a music, so it seems, 
That assuages and redeems, 
More than reason, more than dreams.

There's a music yet unheard 
By the creature of the word, 
Though it matters little more 
Than a wave-wash on the shore-- 
Till a Demon shuts a door.

So, if he be very still 
With his Demon, and one will, 
Murmurs of it may be blown 
To my friend who is alone 
In a room that I have known.Read More

by Dickinson, Emily
...They say that "Time assuages" --
Time never did assuage --
An actual suffering strengthens
As Sinews do, with age --

Time is a Test of Trouble --
But not a Remedy --
If such it prove, it prove too
There was no Malady --...Read More

that are bruised forever, that time
never assuages, never."...Read More
