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

–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

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,

Mockeries of Destiny
by Favilla Mayhearth

Islands of clouds stalk my white, loosely held destiny.
Underneath queen's ring lay pale skin and fragile arteries,
Weak pale queen skin to replicate my overall customs - me.
Proud to be a surface for character-characteristic mockery.

Atrophied I lay in my skin, as decayed veins beneath queen's ring.
I don't wear pearls, I am no queen;
Need no servants, not a queen -
I only seek light.
Up and about within this light, I'm sent into endless sandy rooms,

The Past
by Charles Harpur

The Past is flowing through my thoughts—
Flowing like a sea;
With all its billows dancing bright
Over what?—an undermight
Of darkling loss and destiny.
Still it floweth through my thoughts—
Floweth like a sea;
While of worn hope I ask alway,
Like an unsought cast-astray—
What can the future bring to me?

Flashback of warm night
by Femme Mcbridge

Flashback of warm night,
Swirled in me like the silence of sight,
Suitcase of memories, travel after time
Almost left behind like a debris frite
Always you pictured me
Walk far-away too ahead
But I go slow longing for your head
The second hand of destiny unwinds
I feel I lost you
But if you open your eyes

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!
