Sympathy – A Poem By Paul Laurence Dunbar

Sympathy by Paul Laurence Dunbar I know what the caged bird feels, alas!    When the sun is bright on the upland slopes;   When the wind stirs soft through the springing grass,   And the river flows like a stream of glass;    When the first bird sings and the first bud opes,   And the faint perfume from its chalice steals—I […]

Fall, Leaves, Fall by Emily Brontë Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;Lengthen night and shorten day;Every leaf speaks bliss to meFluttering from the autumn tree.I shall smile when wreaths of snowBlossom where the rose should grow;I shall sing when night’s decayUshers in a drearier day.

The Lucy Poems by William Wordsworth – She dwelt among the untrodden ways

She Dwelt Among the Untrodden Ways She dwelt among the untrodden waysBeside the springs of Dove,A Maid whom there were none to praiseAnd very few to love.

Recuerdo – by Edna St. Vincent Millay

We were very tired, we were very merry—We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.It was bare and bright, and smelled like a stable—But we looked into a fire, we leaned across a table,We lay on a hill-top underneath the moon;And the whistles kept blowing, and the dawn came soon. We were […]

Over hill, over dale – By William Shakespeare

Over Hill, Over Dale A wood near Athens. A Fairy speaks.  Over hill, over dale, Thorough bush, thorough brier, Over park, over pale, Thorough flood, thorough fireI do wander every where, Swifter than the moon’s sphere; And I serve the fairy queen, To dew her orbs upon the green: The cowslips tall her pensioners be; In their gold coats spots you see; Those be […]

To a Skylark – by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Hail to thee, blithe Spirit!Bird thou never wert,That from Heaven, or near it,Pourest thy full heartIn profuse strains of unpremeditated art. Higher still and higherFrom the earth thou springestLike a cloud of fire;The blue deep thou wingest,And singing still dost soar, and soaring ever singest. In the golden lightningOf the sunken sun,O’er which clouds are […]

Kubla Khan – A Poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Kubla Khan by Samuel Taylor Coleridge In Xanadu did Kubla KhanA stately pleasure-dome decree:Where Alph, the sacred river, ranThrough caverns measureless to man  Down to a sunless sea.So twice five miles of fertile groundWith walls and towers were girdled round;And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;And here were forests ancient […]
