Still, I put back your picture. · He is for a moment reminded, pleasantly, of how attractive she had been. Flowers glide to God Almighty. This poem is a brief concert of memories and emotions, with key lilting phrases that build and support, submerge and change. Nature's own green expanse revealed The world, the pleasures, she could prize; On free hill-side, in sunny field, In quiet spots by woods concealed, Grew wild and fresh her chosen joys, Yet Nature's feelings deeply lay In that endowed and youthful frame; Shrined in her heart and hid from day, They burned unseen with silent flame; In youth's first search for mental light, She lived but to reflect and learn, But soon her mind's maturer might For stronger task did pant and yearn; And stronger task did fate assign, Task that a giant's strength might strain; To suffer long and ne'er repine, Be calm in frenzy, smile at pain. The sight of you stunned Us all.

He or she is worried about school. Still, I put back your picture. The sun, in summer, The casements, with ray; But the long of many the very away. These grim oak walls, even then were grim; That old carved chair, was then antique; But what around looked dusk and dim Served as a foil to her fresh cheek; Her neck, and arms, of hue so fair, Eyes of unclouded, smiling, light; Her soft, and curled, and floating hair, Gems and attire, as rainbow bright. The picture had been taken at their first dance. Consequently, the worldwide perception of warfare was changed.

Too much the buried form resembling, Of her who once was mistress here; Lest doubtful shade, or moonbeam trembling, Might take her aspect, once so dear. Over time Rocks and boulders, And everything else Lodged in the river, Will give way To rushing water Charging ahead In its relentless flow Downriver. If you stand very still and hold to your faith You will get all the help that you ask; You will draw from the silence the things that you need, Hope and courage and strength for your task. One of my most treasured possessions. And heaven did curse­they found him laid, When crime for wrath was rife, Cold­with the suicidal blade Clutched in his desperate gripe.

Memento by Eamon Grennan

mementos 1 poem

Because I've conditioned myself to be like you, carelessly tracking in stains on people's hearts that just seem to collect over time. Unscared, the daw, and starling nestle, Where the tall turret rises high, And winds alone come near to rustle The thick leaves where their cradles lie. And outside all is ivy, clinging To chimney, lattice, gable grey; Scarcely one little red rose springing Through the green moss can force its way. And when in rich array, Light, hair her brow, She sat­a kind of day Lit up­what so now. Yet in gay crowd or festal glare, Grave and retiring was her air; 'Twas seldom, save with me alone, That fire of feeling freely shone; She loved not awe's nor wonder's gaze, Nor even exaggerated praise, Nor even notice, if too keen The curious gazer searched her mien. And silent still, she straight assembled The wrecks of strength her soul retained; For though the wasted body trembled, The unconquered mind, to quail, disdained.

I've come, to the window, hither, At twilight, when the sun was down, And Fear, my very soul wither, Lest should be shown. And silent still, she straight assembled The wrecks of strength her soul retained; For though the wasted body trembled, The unconquered mind, to quail, disdained. The sun, sometimes in summer, enters The casements, with reviving ray; But the long rains of many winters Moulder the very walls away. And when attired in rich array, Light, lustrous hair about her brow, She yonder sat­a kind of day Lit up­what seems so gloomy now.

Yet in gay crowd or festal glare, Grave and retiring was her air; 'Twas seldom, save with me alone, That fire of feeling freely shone; She loved not awe's nor wonder's gaze, Nor even exaggerated praise, Nor even notice, if too keen The curious gazer searched her mien. I've come, to close the window, hither, At twilight, when the sun was down, And Fear, my very soul would wither, Lest something should be dimly shown. He was educated at University College in Dublin and Harvard University. I stopped there cold, Like a man raking piles of dead leaves in his yard Who has turned up a severed hand. All in this house is mossing over; All is unused, and dim, and damp; Nor light, nor warmth, the rooms discover­ Bereft for years of fire and lamp.

Fain would I know if, henceforth, ever, These eyes shall read in hers again, That light of love which faded never, Though dimmed so long with secret pain. How would we write these words? They named him mad, and laid his bones Where holier ashes lie; Yet doubt not that his spirit groans, In hell's eternity. I fear to see the very faces, thirty ago, Even in the old places look so cold and now. Open that casket­look how bright Those jewels flash upon the sight; The brilliants have not lost a ray Of lustre, since her wedding day. In the core of my heart identity Into the attainment of unfeigned love.

I think, when late at even I the reluctantly, Some that be well in heaven, Or ill elsewhere, will pass by me. Pale with the secret war of feeling, Sustained with courage, mute, yet high; The wounds at which she bled, revealing Only by altered cheek and eye; She bore in silence­but when passion Surged in her soul with ceaseless foam, The storm at last brought desolation, And drove her exiled from her home. Open that casket­look how Those flash upon the sight; The have not lost a ray Of lustre, her day.
