by Emerson, Ralph Waldo
...Of self in others still preferred,
But they have heartily designed
The benefit of broad mankind.
And they serve men austerely,
After their own genius, clearly,
Without a false humility;
For this is love's nobility,
Not to scatter bread and gold,
Goods and raiment bought and sold,
But to hold fast his simple sense,
And speak the speech of innocence,
And with hand, and body, and blood,
To make his bosom-counsel good:
For he that feeds men, serveth few,
He serves all, who da...Read More

...sonsie Jean, my friend is old.
Comparatively you are young,
And not so sensitive to cold.
Poor chiel! His blood austerely beats,
Though it be sped by barley bree . . .
Slip half an hour between the sheets,
Brave lass, and warm his bed a wee.

Said she: "I'll do the best I can
So that his couch may cosy be,
And as a human warming pan
Prove Highland Hospitality."
So hearing sounds of mild carouse,
As in the down she pillowed deep:
"In half an hour I ...Read More

by Tennyson, Alfred Lord
...heard his foot 
Return from pacings in the field, and ran 
To greet him with a kiss, the master took 
Small notice, or austerely, for his mind 
Half buried in some weightier argument, 
Or fancy-borne perhaps upon the rise 
And long roll of the hexameter -- he past 
To turn and ponder those three hundred scrolls
Left by the Teacher, whom he held divine. 
She brook'd it not, but wrathful, petulant 
Dreaming some rival, sought and found a witch 
Who brew'd the philtre which...Read More

by Milton, John
...rned, I ween, 
Adam from his fair spouse, nor Eve the rites 
Mysterious of connubial love refused: 
Whatever hypocrites austerely talk 
Of purity, and place, and innocence, 
Defaming as impure what God declares 
Pure, and commands to some, leaves free to all. 
Our Maker bids encrease; who bids abstain 
But our Destroyer, foe to God and Man? 
Hail, wedded Love, mysterious law, true source 
Of human offspring, sole propriety 
In Paradise of all things common else! 
By thee ...Read More

by Sassoon, Siegfried
...wove the hazel twigs 
With misty raiment of awakening green. 
I found a holy dimness, and the peace 
Of sanctuary, austerely built of trees, 
And wonder stooping from the tranquil sky. 

Ah! but there was no need to call his name. 
He was beside me now, as swift as light. 
I knew him crushed to earth in scentless flowers, 
And lifted in the rapture of dark pines. 
‘For now,’ he said, ‘my spirit has more eyes
Than heaven has stars; and they are lit by love...Read More

by Delville, Jean spendour of secular reigns.

And their bodies, where the original blood has congealed,
Sealed within the marbles, austerely patrician,
Are the petrified Phantoms of ancient times

by McKay, Claude
...o turn myself away 
From beckoning flowers beautifully blown, 
To mourn your vivid memory alone 
In mountain fastnesses austerely gray. 
The mists will shroud me on the utter height, 
The salty, brimming waters of my breast 
Will mingle with the fresh dews of the night 
To bathe my spirit hankering to rest. 
But after sleep I'll wake with greater might, 
Once more to venture on the eternal quest....Read More
