World Ebook Libray Consortia Poetry Collection

By: William Butler Yeats

Poetry

Excerpt: Among School Children // I // I WALK through the long schoolroom questioning; // A kind old nun in a white hood replies; // The children learn to cipher and to sing, // To study reading-books and histories, // To cut and sew, be neat in everything // In the best modern way - the children's eyes // In momentary wonder stare upon // A sixty-year-old smiling public man. // I dream of a Ledaean body, bent // Above a sinking fire. a tale that she // Told of a harsh r...

World Ebook Libray Consortia Poetry Collection

By: Rida Johnson Young

Poetry

Excerpt: Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life // AH! sweet mystery of life, at last I've found thee; // Ah! I know at last the secret of it all; // All the longing, striving, seeking, waiting, yearning, // The burning hopes, the joys and idle tears that fall! // For 'tis love, and love alone, the world is seeking; // And it's love, and love alone, that can reply; // 'Tis the answer, ti's the end and all of living, // For it is love alone that rules for aye!

The Spell of the Yukon, And Other Verses

By: Robert W. Service

Poetry

Excerpt: The Land God Forgot // The lonely sunsets flare forlorn // Down valleys dreadly desolate; // The lordly mountains soar in scorn // As still as death, as stern as fate. // The lonely sunsets flame and die; // The giant valleys gulp the night; // The monster mountains scrape the sky, // Where eager stars are diamond-bright. // So gaunt against the gibbous moon, // Piercing the silence velvet-piled, // A lone wolf howls his ancient rune - // The fell arch-spirit of...

The Spell of the Yukon, And Other Verses

By: Robert W. Service

Poetry

Excerpt: The Shooting of Dan McGrew // A bunch of the boys were whooping it up in the Malamute saloon; // The kid that handles the music-box was hitting a jag-time tune; // Back of the bar, in a solo game, sat Dangerous Dan McGrew, // And watching his luck was his light-o'-love, the lady that's known as Lou. // When out of the night, which was fifty below, and into the din and the glare, // There stumbled a miner fresh from the creeks, dog-dirty, and loaded for bear. // ...

The Spell of the Yukon, And Other Verses

By: Robert W. Service

Poetry

Excerpt: The Little Old Log Cabin // When a man gits on his uppers in a hard-pan sort of town, // An' he ain't got nothin' comin' an' he can't afford ter eat, // An' he's in a fix for lodgin' an' he wanders up an' down, // An' you'd fancy he'd been boozin', he's so locoed 'bout the feet; // When he's feelin' sneakin' sorry an' his belt is hangin' slack, // An' his face is peaked an' gray-like an' his heart gits down an' whines, // Then he's apt ter git a-thinkin' an' a-w...
