by Herrick, Robert
...ll our joy, a sweet-faced child was born,
More tender than the childhood of the morn.
CHORUS:--Pan pipe to him, and bleats of lambs and
Let lullaby the pretty prince asleep!
MIRT. And that his birth should be more singular,
At noon of day was seen a silver star,
Bright as the wise men's torch, which guided them
To God's sweet babe, when born at Bethlehem;
While golden angels, some have told to me,
Sung out his birth with heav'nly minstrelsy.
AMIN. O rare...Read More

...ease yourself, offending them; 
Though when they seem exorbitantly sheep, 
You weigh your pleasure with their butts and bleats 
And strike the balance. Sometimes certain fears 
Restrain you, real checks since you find them so; 
Sometimes you please yourself and nothing checks: 

And thus you graze through life with not one lie, 
And like it best. 

But do you, in truth's name? 
If so, you beat--which means you are not I-- 
Who needs must make earth mine and feed my f...Read More

...s vale produces.

My cottage wears a gracious smile,--
The altar, decked in floral glory,
Yearns for the lamb which bleats the while
As though it pined for honors gory.

Hither our neighbors nimbly fare,--
The boys agog, the maidens snickering;
And savory smells possess the air
As skyward kitchen flames are flickering.

This festive throng, and goodly diet?
Well, since you're bound to have your way,
I don't mind telling, on t...Read More

...ther hull to hull
where the graveyard shelves on the town....
My mind's not right.

A car radio bleats
"Love, O careless Love...." I hear
my ill-spirit sob in each blood cell,
as if my hand were at its throat....
I myself am hell;
nobody's here--

only skunks, that search
in the moonlight for a bite to eat.
They march on their soles up Main Street:
white stripes, moonstruck eyes' red fire
under the chalk-d...Read More

by Kipling, Rudyard>
 'Tis a league and a league to the Lena Falls where the trooping blackbuck go;
 But I can hear the little fawn that bleats behind the doe.

 'Tis a league and a league to the Lena Falls where the crop and the upland meet,
 But I Can smell the wet dawn-wind that wakes the sprouting wheat.
 Unbar the door. I may not bide, but I must out and see 
 If those are wolves that wait outside or my own kin to me!"
