Tubal Cain

cain

OLD Tubal Cain was a man of might, In the days when earth was young; By the fierce red light of his furnace bright, The strokes of his hammer rung: And he lifted high his brawny hand On the iron glowing clear, Till the sparks rushed out in scarlet showers, As he fashioned the sword and the spear. And he …

Kubla Khan

kubla

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan A stately pleasure-dome decree: Where Alph, the sacred river, ran Through caverns measureless to man    Down to a sunless sea. So twice five miles of fertile ground With 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 as the …

A Thing of Beauty

main-qimg-a698af0a76ef61338c72f64a0592384d

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness; but still will keep A bower quiet for us, and a sleep Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing. Therefore, on every morrow, are we wreathing A flowery band to bind us to the earth, Spite of despondence, of the …

Sonnet for ANZAC Day

207046_home_hero

Sound the Last Post again, lest we forget the freedom that we cherish has been bought – not found like mushrooms in the field; the debt is ours to pay, mindful of those who fought and fell – yet still they held the torch aloft! May we remain as zealous to withstand the traitors who would make our fibres soft, …

Sonnet 40: Take all my loves, my love, yea, take them all

09AF6E85-BF83-40AD-8C41-22B62F57C92C

Take all my loves, my love, yea, take them all: What hast thou then more than thou hadst before? No love, my love, that thou mayst true love call— All mine was thine before thou hadst this more. Then if for my love thou my love receivest, I cannot blame thee for my love thou usest; But yet be blamed …

This Life on Earth

Jesus died for our sins, paying our penalty, so that we could be forgiven. He was resurrected, to prove that death has no hold on those who repent and accept Him as …

A Dream Within A Dream

aPoeMuse2

Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow- You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or …
