Algernon Charles Swinburne

(1873-1909)

  • A Ballad of Burdens
       The burden of fair women. Vain delight,
  • A Child's Laughter
       ALL the bells of heaven may ring,
  • A Clasp Of Hands
       SOFT, small, and sweet as sunniest flowers
  • A Dialogue
       DEATH, if thou wilt, fain would I plead with thee:
  • A Forsaken Garden
       IN a coign of the cliff between lowland and highland,
  • A Leave-Taking
       Let us go hence, my songs; she will not hear.
  • A Year's Carols
       HAIL, January, that bearest here
  • Cleopatra
       HER mouth is fragrant as a vine,
  • Comparisons
       CHILD, when they say that others
  • Four Songs Of Four Seasons
       WINTER IN NORTHUMBERLAND
  • Love and Sleep
       Lying asleep between the strokes of night
  • Music: An Ode
       WAS it light that spake from the darkness,
  • Sorrow
       SORROW, on wing through the world for ever,
  • To A Cat
       STATELY, kindly, lordly friend,
