The New Year
by Irmgard Elizabeth Spirk

Dazzles light mine-your eyes quick fast sparkle
Glistening knowledge joyous God High
We amaze soft laughing brim satisfied full
As around us all light too-full joyous nigh

Soft patter footsteps left behind weary heaviness
As new fallen white soft snow anticipates our weighted gravity to
And we joyous light laugh-His Free Acknowledge Gift suppleness
In reminiscences learned expanse gain-now-ever new

A Man's A Man For A' That
by Robert Burns

Is there for honesty poverty
That hings his head, an' a' that;
The coward slave - we pass him by,
We dare be poor for a' that!
For a' that, an' a' that,
Our toils obscure an' a' that,
The rank is but the guinea's stamp,
The man's the gowd for a' that.

What though on hamely fare we dine,

Two Horses And A Dog
by James Galvin

Without external reference,
The world presents itself
In perfect clarity.

Wherewithal, arrested moments,
The throes of demystification,
Morality as nothing more
Than humility and honesty, a salty measure.

Then it was a cold snap,

Worm Either Way
by David Herbert Lawrence

If you live along with all the other people
and are just like them, and conform, and are nice
you're just a worm --

and if you live with all the other people
and you don't like them and won't be like them and won't conform
then you're just the worm that has turned,
in either case, a worm.

The conforming worm stays just inside the skin

A Carol
by Rudyard Kipling

Our Lord Who did the Ox command
To kneel to Judah's King,
He binds His frost upon the land
To ripen it for Spring --
To ripen it for Spring, good sirs,
According to His Word.
Which well must be as ye can see --
And who shall judge the Lord?

When we poor fenmen skate the ice

Give Chance To Grow
by Rafiq Pasha

Let there be no restrictions
let there be no limitations
for the poor and needy.

For skint if any opportunity arise
let them reap the surprise
just support the weak and weedy.

Under the shadow of poverty
these beings exhibit honesty

The Hinterland
by Robert William Service

You speak to me, but does your speech
With truest truth your thought convey?
I listen to your words and each
Is what I wait to hear you say.
The pattern that your lips reveal,
How does it measure with your mind?
What undertones do you conceal?
Your smile is sweet - but what's behind?

I speak to you, but do I tell

The Ghost Of Roger Casement
by William Butler Yeats

O WHAT has made that sudden noise?
What on the threshold stands?
It never crossed the sea because
John Bull and the sea are friends;
But this is not the old sea
Nor this the old seashore.
What gave that roar of mockery,
That roar in the sea's roar?
The ghost of Roger Casement
Is beating on the door.

I Prayed, At First, A Little Girl
by Emily Dickinson

576

I prayed, at first, a little Girl,
Because they told me to—
But stopped, when qualified to guess
How prayer would feel—to me—

If I believed God looked around,
Each time my Childish eye
Fixed full, and steady, on his own
