O TROPH'EO

Noite quente d'abril. Um golpho oriental E o mar cantando aos pés tristezas sem egual.

Paz immensa, em que a noite etherea e constellada Scismava na mudez da sombra avelludada...

Na baca pallidez d'um terraco sumptuoso, Feito para um sult~ao se embriagar de gòso,

Da pallida Dinah, a pallida figura Sorvia, n'um anceio, errando pela altura,

Um desejo sem fórma, ethereo,...

A Volume of Verse

Copyrighted 1906 by EDWIN C. RANCK

PREFACE

This little volume was written for no reason on earth and with no earthly reason. It just simply happened, on the principle, I suppose that "murder will out." Murder is a bad thing and so are nonsense rhymes. There is often a valid excuse for murder; there is none for nonsense rhymes. They seem to be a necessary evil to be classed with smallpox, chicken pox, yellow fever and other i...

BALLADE DEDICATORY TO MRS. ELTON OF WHITE STAUNTON

The painted Briton built his mound, And left his celts and clay, On yon fair slope of sunlit ground That fronts your garden gay; The Roman came, he bore the sway, He bullied, bought, and sold, Your fountain sweeps his works away Beside your manor old!

But still his crumbling urns are found Within the window bay, Where once he listened to the sound That l...
