Treasure Island

Daniel Henry Deniehy

(18 August 1828 - 22 October 1865 / Sydney / Australia)

Love in a Cottage


A cottage small be mine, with porch
   Enwreathed with ivy green,
And brightsome flowers with dew-filled bells,
   'Mid brown old wattles seen.

And one to wait at shut of eve,
   With eyes as fountain clear,
And braided hair, and simple dress,
   My homeward step to hear.

On summer eves to sing old songs,
   And talk o'er early vows,
While stars look down like angels' eyes
   Amid the leafy boughs.

When Spring flowers peep from flossy cells,
   And bright-winged parrots call,
In forest paths be ours to rove
   Till purple evenings fall.

The curtains closed, by taper clear
   To read some page divine,
On winter nights, the hearth beside,
   Her soft, warm hand in mine.

And so to glide through busy life,
   Like some small brook alone,
That winds its way 'mid grassy knolls,
   Its music all its own.

The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
