    London Roses

    London Roses

    [ranking: 32]
    "Rowses, Rowses! Penny a bunch!" they tell you--Slattern girls in Trafalgar, eager to sell you.Roses, roses, red in the Kensington sun,Holland Road, High Street, Bayswater, see you and smell you--Roses of London town, red till the summer is done. Roses, roses, locust and lilac, perfumingWest End, East End, wondrously budding and bloomingOut of the black earth, rubbed in a million hands,Foot-trod, sweat-sour over and under, entombingHighways of darkness, deep gutted with iron bands. "Rowses, rowses! Penny a bunch!" they tell you,Ruddy blooms of corruption, see you and smell you,Born of stale earth, fallowed with squalor and tears--North shire, south shire, none are like these, I tell you,Roses of London perfumed with a thousand years. Author: Willa Cather

    Richard Cory

    Richard Cory

    [ranking: 26]
    Whenever Richard Cory went down town,We people on the pavement looked at him:He was a gentleman from sole to crown,Clean favored, and imperially slim.
    And he was always quietly arrayed,And he was always human when he talked;But still he fluttered pulses when he said,"Good-morning," and he glittered when he walked.
    And he was rich??yes, richer than a king??And admirably schooled in every grace:In fine, we thought that he was everythingTo make us wish that we were in his place.
    So on we worked, and waited for the light,And went without the meat, and cursed the bread;And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,Went home and put a bullet through his head. Author: Edwin Arlington Robinson

    Sigh No More, Ladies

    Sigh No More, Ladies

    [ranking: 29]
    Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more. Men were deceivers ever,One foot in sea, and one on shore, To one thing constant never.Then sigh not so, but let them go, And be you blithe and bonny,Converting all your sounds of woe Into hey nonny, nonny.
    Sing no more ditties, sing no more Of dumps so dull and heavy.The fraud of men was ever so Since summer first was leafy.Then sigh not so, but let them go, And be you blithe and bonny,Converting all your sounds of woe Into hey, nonny, nonny. Author: William Shakespeare

    A Dream Within a Dream

    A Dream Within a Dream

    [ranking: 19]
    Take this kiss upon the brow!And, in parting from you now,Thus much let me avow ??You are not wrong, who deemThat my days have been a dream;Yet if hope has flown awayIn a night, or in a day,In a vision, or in none,Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seemIs but a dream within a dream.
    I stand amid the roarOf a surf-tormented shore,And I hold within my handGrains of the golden sand ??How few! yet how they creepThrough my fingers to the deep,While I weep ?? while I weep!O God! Can I not graspThem with a tighter clasp?O God! can I not saveOne from the pitiless wave?Is all that we see or seemBut a dream within a dream? Author: Edgar Allan Poe

    Eldorado

    Eldorado

    [ranking: 20]
    Gaily bedight, A gallant knight,In sunshine and in shadow, Had journeyed long, Singing a song,In search of Eldorado.
    But he grew old?? This knight so bold?? And o??er his heart a shadow?? Fell as he found No spot of groundThat looked like Eldorado.
    And, as his strength Failed him at length,He met a pilgrim shadow?? ??Shadow,?? said he, ??Where can it be??This land of Eldorado???
    ??Over the Mountains Of the Moon,Down the Valley of the Shadow, Ride, boldly ride,?? The shade replied,????If you seek for Eldorado!?? Author: Edgar Allan Poe

    To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time

    To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time

    [ranking: 27]
    Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying;And this same flower that smiles today Tomorrow will be dying.
    The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun, The higher he??s a-getting,The sooner will his race be run, And nearer he??s to setting.
    That age is best which is the first, When youth and blood are warmer;But being spent, the worse, and worst Times still succeed the former.
    Then be not coy, but use your time, And while ye may, go marry;For having lost but once your prime, You may forever tarry. Author: Robert Herrick
