The Embers that Awoke

Cold blew the ashes of my heart. 
Gone all heat, all joy I knew,
Seemed to depart.

One brave ember lingered;
Gleaming red, a meagre coal.
Yet alone, it stirred!

Alone we should fade,
In half contented despair,
In lives where none did care.

But as long banked flame,
Passion met and fire awoke from air
In Love again we grew!

My heart, I heard your sighs!
My love awoke,
To your need it flies!

A loves compassion,
By one bright soul,
My pain was heard.

Across sundering seas,
Over wind and words.
Hope again is called.

To another sorrowing heart,
So near to its end;
Also hurt and cold.

An’ in your passions wild embrace,
I was restored,
Strength renewed, replaced.

And each made awesome,
In there meeting.

So we do crown the other.
We rise once more,
Whole and in love, restored!

By Giles Murray

She Walks In Beauty

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

- Lord Byron  





Under the Harvest Moon

Under the harvest moon,
 When the soft silver
 Drips shimmering
 Over garden nights,
 Death, the gray mocker,
 Comes and whispers to you
 As a beautiful friend
 Who remembers.
Under the summer roses
 When the flagrant crimson
 Lurks in the dusk
 Of the wild red leaves,
 Love, with little hands,
 Comes and touches you
 With a thousand memories,
 And asks you
 Beautiful, unanswerable questions.
- Carl Sandburg

18th Sonnet

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st,
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

-William Shakespear

At Last

At last, when all the summer shine
   That warmed life's early hours is past,
Your loving fingers seek for mine
   And hold them close—at last—at last!
Not oft the robin comes to build
   Its nest upon the leafless bough
By autumn robbed, by winter chilled,—
   But you, dear heart, you love me now.

Though there are shadows on my brow
   And furrows on my cheek, in truth,—
The marks where Time's remorseless plough
   Broke up the blooming sward of Youth,—
Though fled is every girlish grace
   Might win or hold a lover's vow,
Despite my sad and faded face,
   And darkened heart, you love me now!

I count no more my wasted tears;
   They left no echo of their fall;
I mourn no more my lonesome years;
   This blessed hour atones for all.
I fear not all that Time or Fate
   May bring to burden heart or brow,—
Strong in the love that came so late,
   Our souls shall keep it always now!

Elizabeth Akers Allen
