The Vicar of Wakefield

They ran and shouted, ran and shot (At passing they were not so hot) Pulled a sock up, rolled a sleeve And scored more goals than you’d believe.   Slid and tackled, leapt and fell Dodged and dribbled, dived as well Headed, shouldered, elbowed, kneed And half-time in the bushes peed.   Yet there was […]

Faded Glory

Fade far away, dissolve, and quite forget What thou amongst the leaves hast never known The weariness, the fever, and the fret Here, where men sit and hear each other groan; Where palsy shakes a few, sad, last grey hairs Where youth grows pale, and spectre-thin, and dies Where but to think is to be […]

A Trip to The Smoke

Earth has not anything to show more fair: Dull would he be of soul who could pass by A sight so touching in its majesty: This City now doth, like a garment, wear The beauty of the morning: silent, bare, Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie Open unto the fields, and to the sky; […]
