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

A Diamond In The Rough
by Wilma R. Cole

He is an old man, now -
The brown sinew of his body and hands
Is clearly evidenced in the works
He leaves to man.
A man of humble origin and birth -
He followed the Golden Rule for his fellowman.
He asks only for what is rightfully his;
With respect and dignity he earned with pride.
A man 'so called' A Diamond In The Rough.

The Mistletoe (A Christmas Tale)
by Mary Darby Robinson

A farmer's wife, both young and gay,
And fresh as op'ning buds of May;
Had taken to herself, a Spouse,
And plighted many solemn vows,
That she a faithful mate would prove,
In meekness, duty, and in love!
That she, despising joy and wealth,
Would be, in sickness and in health,
His only comfort and his Friend--
But, mark the sequel,--and attend!

Seas Of Earth, Seas Of Space
by Yvonne Goss

At night Earthly seas of ebony,
Reflect the seas of space.
Reflect the hopes and dreams,
Of all the human race.

Tiny lanterns in the midst of darkness,
Light the way to the future of mankind.
To go and search the heavens,
Once only dreams of a dreamers mind.

Soldiers are citizens of death's gray land,
Drawing no dividend from time's to-morrows.
In the great hour of destiny they stand,
Each with his feuds, and jealousies, and sorrows.
Soldiers are sworn to action; they must win
Some flaming, fatal climax with their lives.
Soldiers are dreamers; when the guns begin
They think of firelit homes, clean beds, and wives.

I see them in foul dug-outs, gnawed by rats,

Twilight Love
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

shadows approaching
stars are shining, mercy me
sparkling moonlit lake

a mass surrender
as pink lilies bloom lately
and I can see mars

once again I am
falling in love with the night

Sailor Boy
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Fearless sailor boy, the wide open seas are calling,
As the whistles of thrushes, when no one is talking.
Royal destiny and daring, has led you here this day,
And deep thirst for adventure, will sweep you away!

Always your heart has known, one day you'd set sail,
Into the golden horizon, where contentment prevails;
But the tears you leave behind, has caused you sighs,
Someday you'll be returning, as true love never dies!

Another Apricot Sunrise
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

It was just one of those splendid days, which held no excitement;
Moreover it required none, for in its stillness, I was content.

Lying on the forest green grass, luxurious blue skies in my eyes,
Summer winds brought me nature's music, and I needed no surprise.

I found fun shapes in the clouds, and now and then I dozed off,
In a sunny, blooming meadow, watching the birds land and takeoff.

In the middle of the feverish day, just after my picnic lunch,

Pleasant and Vivid Dreams
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

It's spark of life has now burst to flame,
The once vague idea has now gotten a name.
From wildest dreams the masterpiece came,
To bask in a jeweled light of sudden fame.

The blue-green days of deep purple endings,
And starry nights of moonlight descendings,
Lead to treasures of the rainbow's lending,
For magic is the way that faith is tending!

The ship that sank
by Kriti Manocha

The sky so black
The stars so shiny
Beneath the endless mass of sky
In the never ending sea
The beautiful ship sank.

All was quiet
All was calm
But for the waves rising
And the waves falling
