The Fallen Elm
by John Clare

Old elm that murmured in our chimney top
The sweetest anthem autumn ever made
And into mellow whispering calms would drop
When showers fell on thy many coloured shade
And when dark tempests mimic thunder made -
While darkness came as it would strangle light
With the black tempest of a winter night
That rocked thee like a cradle in thy root -
How did I love to hear the winds upbraid
Thy strength without - while all within was mute.

On Death
by Percy Bysshe Shelley

The pale, the cold, and the moony smile
Which the meteor beam of a starless night
Sheds on a lonely and sea-girt isle,
Ere the dawning of morn's undoubted light,
Is the flame of life so fickle and wan
That flits round our steps till their strength is gone.

O man! hold thee on in courage of soul
Through the stormy shades of thy wordly way,
And the billows of clouds that around thee roll

by John Donne

Sweetest love, I do not go,
For weariness of thee,
Nor in hope the world can show
A fitter love for me;
But since that I
Must die at last, 'tis best
To use myself in jest
Thus by feign'd deaths to die.

Yesternight the sun went hence,

The Law
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

The sun may be clouded, yet ever the sun
Will sweep on its course till the cycle is run.
And when onto chaos the systems are hurled,
Again shall the Builder reshape a new world.

Your path may be clouded, uncertain your goal;
Move on, for the orbit is fixed for your soul.
And though it may lead into darkness of night,
The torch of the Builder shall give you new light.

–Eros: acaso no sentiste nunca
Piedad de las estatuas?
Se dirían crisálidas de piedra
De yo no sé qué formidable raza
En una eterna espera inenarrable.
Los cráteres dormidos de sus bocas
Dan la ceniza negra del Silencio,
Mana de las columnas de sus hombros

But I have a Choice – and forgive me t ' be straight

Life is so – and I don’ need to pace

my whole days – bearing a grunge

on Her Beauty’s Face.

I cannot stay a baby if I'm to set you free
by Pilgrim Roy

I cannot stay a baby if I'm to set you free.
For I have to climb the steep hill called Calvary.
I need to leave the manger to become a man,
and follow the path that completes Salvations plan.

Although you've just celebrated my nativity,
another thirty years have been given to me.
There are people to heal and I've so much to say
to spread the Good news and walk the heavenly way.

While skyline is dozing red in Sevilla
by Lampetti -

Somethin’ very good ‘s happen’

while Azure Cantilena

gingles on my mind – self-curving latitudes

of spritzful euphoria.

Chili in tiny bowls – and then chill out – The Sunset

Don't linger dude
by Lampetti -

Brunetto Latini was punished as well

he did the best that he can do

So please don’t listen the lasts

but peak straight to the ninth’ canto.

My time and place in this world
by Baramundi Roy

My time in this world has been so short and transitory,
too small a slot to make its mark upon Earths’ history.
My place in this earth so trivial and insignificant
Each action and deed unimportant and irrelevant

My space on this planet will be replaced by someone
unheeded and unnoticed by generations to come,
and yet I have lived out the life that God gave to me
and have now moved on into Heavens’ eternity.
