Said God, “You sisters, ere ye go
Down among men, my work to do,
I will on each a badge bestow:
Hope I love best, and gold for her,
Yet a silver glory for Despair,
For she is my angel too.”
Then like a queen, Despair
Put on the stars to wear.
But Hope took ears of corn, and round
Her temples in a wreath them bound. –
Which think ye lookt [sic] the more fair?
Best Wishes

[underlined] Morning at the Window [/underlined]
They are rattling breakfast plates in basement kitchens
And along the trampled edges of the street
I am aware of the damp souls of housemaids
Sprouting despondently at area gates.
The brown waves of fog toss up to me
Twisted faces from the bottom of the street
And tear from a passer-by with muddy skirts
An aimless smile that hovers in the air
And vanishes along the level of the roofs.
T.S. Eliot

For birds with broken wings, For rabbits caught in springs, For poor bewildered foxes, And butterflies in boxes; Hear us, we beseech Thee.
For dogs without a home, For “cats that walk alone”, For horses worn & old, For sheep without a fold; Hear us, we beseech Thee.
For all those weak & lowly Depending on man solely, By all we hold most Holy Hear us, we beseech Thee.

A naked house, a naked moor, A shivering pool before the door, A garden bare of flowers and fruit, And poplars at the garden foot: Such is the place that I live in, Break without and bare within.

[underlined] The One Before The Last [/underlined]
(Apologies to Robert Brooks)
I dreamt I was in love again
With the One Before the Last,
And smiled to greet the pleasant pain
Of that innocent young pest.
But I jumped to feel how sharp had been
The pain when it did live,
How the faded dreams of Nineteen-ten
Were Hell in Nineteen-five.
The girl’s woe was as keen and clear,
The girl’s love just as true,
And the One Before the Last, my dear,
Hurt just as much as you.
Oh! bitter thoughts I had in plenty.
But here’s the worst of it -
I shall forget, in Thirteen-twenty,
You ever hurt a bit!
(Bev with Love a character sketch)

I sometimes think I’d rather crow
And be a rooster than toroost
And be a crow. But I dunno.
A rooster he can roost also.
Which don’t seem fair when crow’s can’t crow
Which may help some. Still I dunno.
Crows should be glad of one thing, though
Nobody thinks of eating crow,
While roosters they are good enough
For anyone unless they’re tough.
There are lots of tough old rooster though,
And anyway a crow can’t crow
So [indecipherable word] roosters stand more show
It looks that way. But I dunno.

[underlined] Sea Fever [/underlined]
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face and a [underlined] grey dawn breaking [/underlined].
I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must go down to the seas again to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And a quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over. John Masefield.

[underlined] There Must be Trees… [/underlined]
“….There must be trees in all men’s lives –
Brave, lofty, singing trees whose great upstretching arms shall bear their earthly pain and rooted care –
Men should make friends of trees!!

I did not lose my heart in summer’s even
When roses to the moonrise burst apart:
When plumes were under heel and lead was flying.
In blood and smoke and flame I lost my heart.
I lost it to a soldier and a foemen,
A chap that did not kill me, but he tried.
That took the sabre straight and took it striking
And laughed and kissed his hand to me and died.
A.E.Houseman
