(1824 - 1889)

  • A Day-Dream's Reflection
       Chequer'd with woven shadows as I lay
  • A Dream
       I heard the dogs howl in the moonlight night;
  • A Gravestone
       Far from the churchyard dig his grave,
  • A Memory
       Four ducks on a pond,
  • A Seed
       See how a Seed, which Autumn flung down,
  • A Singer
       That which he did not feel, he would not sing;
  • Abbey Assaroe
       Gray, gray is Abbey Assaroe, by Belashanny town,
  • Adieu to Belshanny
       Adieu to Belashanny! where I was bred and born;
  • Aeolian Harp
       O pale green sea,
  • After Sunset
       The vast and solemn company of clouds
  • Amy Margaret's Five Year Old

       Here the white-ray'd anemone is born,
  • In Snow
       O English mother, in the ruddy glow

       October - and the skies are cool and gray
  • Lepracaun or Fairy Shoemaker, The
       Little Cowboy, what have you heard,
  • Little Dell, The

  • Meadowsweet
       Through grass, through amber'd cornfields, our slow Stream--
  • On a Forenoon of Spring
       I'm glad I am alive, to see and feel
  • Places and Men
       In Sussex here, by shingle and by sand,
  • Robin Redbreast
       Good-bye, good-bye to Summer!
  • These Little Songs
       These little Songs,
  • Touchstone, The
       A man there came, whence none could tell,
  • Wayside Flowers
       Pluck not the wayside flower,
  • Writing
       A man who keeps a diary, pays
