by Blunden, Edmund
    As mellows round their threshold; what long hours
    They gloat upon their steepling hollyhocks,
    Bee's balsams, feathery southernwood, and stocks,
    Fiery dragon's-mouths, great mallow leaves
    For salves, and lemon-plants in bushy sheaves,
    Shagged Esau's-hands with five green finger-tips.
    Such old sweet names are ever on their lips.
    As pleased as little children where these grow
    In cobbled pattens and worn gowns they go,

...nd could not do without and keep its Christmas.
He asked if I would sell my Christmas trees;
My woods—the young fir balsams like a place
Where houses all are churches and have spires.
I hadn’t thought of them as Christmas Trees.

For I have a providential acquaintance with men who bear the names of animals. 

For I bless God to Mr Lion Mr Cock ...Read More

by Byron, George (Lord)
...sooner, were 
The natural compound left alone to fight 
Its way back into earth, and fire, and air; 
But the unnatural balsams merely blight 
What nature made him at his birth, as bare 
As the mere million's base unmarried clay — 
Yet all his spices but prolong decay. 


He's dead — and upper earth with him has done; 
He's buried; save the undertaker's bill, 
Or lapidary scrawl, the world is gone 
For him, unless he left a German will: 
But where's the proctor who w...Read More
