by Montgomery, Lucy Maud
...ties and paths of the sea 
We have come again to our own roof-tree, 
And forgetting the loves of the stranger lands 
We yearn for the clasp of our kindred's hands. 

There are tales to tell, there are tears to shed,
There are children's flower-faces and women's sweet laughter;
There's a chair left vacant for one who is dead
Where the firelight crimsons the ancient rafter; 
What reck we of the world that waits 
With care and clamor beyond our gates, 
We, with our own, in t...Read More

by Parker, Dorothy
...I do not like my state of mind;
I'm bitter, querulous, unkind.
I hate my legs, I hate my hands,
I do not yearn for lovelier lands.
I dread the dawn's recurrent light;
I hate to go to bed at night.
I snoot at simple, earnest folk.
I cannot take the gentlest joke.
I find no peace in paint or type.
My world is but a lot of tripe.
I'm disillusioned, empty-breasted.
For what I think, I'd be arrested.
I am not sick, I am not well.

 His consolation.

 Or, if impelled to interfere
 Exhort, uplift, advise,
 Lend not a base, betraying ear
 To all the victim's cries.

 Only the Lord can understand
 When those first pangs begin,

by Schiller, Friedrich von
Amidst the shades, myself a shade!
I see her eyes, that search through tears,
In vain the golden light to greet;
That yearn for yonder distant spheres,
That pine the mother's face to meet!
Till some bright moment shall renew
The severed hearts' familiar ties;
And softened pity steal in dew,
From Pluto's slow-relenting eyes!

Ah, vain the wish, the sorrows are!
Calm in the changeless paths above
Rolls on the day-god's golden car--
Fast are the fixed decrees of Jove!
Far from...Read More
