  • POEM I

A bird came down the Walk

He did not know I saw

He bit an Angle Worm in halves

And ate the fellow, raw,


And then he drank a Dew

From a convenient Grass

And then hopped sidewise to the Wall

To let a Beetle pass


He glanced with rapid eyes, That hurried all abroad

They looked like frightened Beads, thought,

He stirred his velvet Head.

Like one in danger, Cautious,

I offered him a Crumb, And he unrolled his feathers, And rowed him softer Home


Than Oars divide the Ocean,

Too Silver for a seam,

Or Butterflies off Banks of Noon,

Leap, plashless as they swim.

She Dwelt Among The Untrodden Ways

She dwelt among the untrodden ways

Beside the springs of Dove

A Maid whom there was none to praise

And very few to love

A violet by a mossy stone

Half-hidden from the eye!

Fair as a star when only one

Is shining in the sky.

She lived unknown,and few could know

When Lucy ceased to be;

But she is in her grave and,oh,

The difference to me!

  • Frogs


Frogs sit more solid than anything

In mid leap they are

Parachutists falling

In a free fall. They die on roads.

With arms across their chests and heads high.

I love frogs that sit

Like Buddha, that fall without

Parachutes, that die

Like Italian tenors

Above all I love them because

Pursued in water they never

Panic so much that they fail

To make stylish triangles

With their ballet dancer’s Legs.
