I Wish I Was What I Have Been


I wish I was what I have been
And what I was could be
As when I roved in shadows green
And loved my willow tree.

~ John Clare

Her Thoughts Are Like The Lotus


Her thoughts are like the lotus
Abloom by sacred streams
Beneath the temple arches
Where Quiet sits and dreams.

~ Sara Teasdale

The Day Is New And Fair


The day is new and fair with good smells in the air.

~ Amy Lowell

Thou Away, The Very Birds Are Mute


For summer and his pleasures wait on thee,
And, thou away, the very birds are mute;
Or, if they sing, 'tis with so dull a cheer
That leaves look pale, dreading the winter's near.

~ William Shakespeare

She Turned Away


She turned away, but with the autumn weather
Compelled my imagination many days,
Many days and many hours:
Her hair over her arms and her arms full of flowers.

~ T. S. Eliot

I Wish I Were A Primrose


Ring-ting! I wish I were a Primrose,
A bright yellow Primrose, blowing in the Spring!

~ William Allingham
