    A Ballade of Suicide

    The gallows in my garden, people say,
    Is new and neat and adequately tall;
    I tie the noose on in a knowing way
    As one that knots his necktie for a ball;
    But just as all the neighbours--on the wall--
    Are drawing a long breath to shout "Hurray!"
    The strangest whim has seized me. . . . After all
    I think I will not hang myself to-day.

    To-morrow is the time I get my pay--
    My uncle's sword is hanging in the hall--
    I see a little cloud all pink and grey--
    Perhaps the rector's mother will not call-- I fancy that I heard from Mr. Gall
    That mushrooms could be cooked another way--
    I never read the works of Juvenal--
    I think I will not hang myself to-day.

    The world will have another washing-day;
    The decadents decay; the pedants pall;
    And H.G. Wells has found that children play,
    And Bernard Shaw discovered that they squall,
    Rationalists are growing rational--
    And through thick woods one finds a stream astray
    So secret that the very sky seems small--
    I think I will not hang myself to-day.

    Envoi

    Prince, I can hear the trumpet of Germinal,
    The tumbrils toiling up the terrible way;
    Even to-day your royal head may fall,
    I think I will not hang myself to-day. read more »

    Sonnet 30: When to the sessions of sweet silent thought

    When to the sessions of sweet silent thought
    I summon up remembrance of things past,
    I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought,
    And with old woes new wail my dear time's waste. read more »

    A Burial

    Today I had a burial of my dead.
    There was no shroud, no coffin, and no pall,
    No prayers were uttered and no tears were shed
    I only turned a picture to the wall. read more »

    To The Memory Of Mr Oldham

    Farewell, too little and too lately known,
    Whom I began to think and call my own;
    For sure our souls were near allied, and thine
    Cast in the same poetic mould with mine. read more »

    A Song Of Living

    Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.
    I have sent up my gladness on wings, to be lost in the blue of the sky.
    I have run and leaped with the rain, I have taken the wind to my breast.
    My cheeks like a drowsy child to the face of the earth I have pressed. read more »
