MADISON JULIUS CAWEIN
American poet and author
(1865 - 1914)

When death hath poured oblivion through my veins,
  And brought me home, as all are brought, to lie
    In that vast house, common to serfs and thanes,--
      I shall not die, I shall not utterly die,
        For beauty born of beauty--that remains.
      - [Death]

Into the sunset's turquoise marge
  The moon dips, like a pearly barge;
    Enchantment sails through magic seas,
      To fairland Hesperides,
        Over the hills and away.
      - At Sunset (st. 1) [Moon]

There are haunters of the silence, ghosts that hold the heart and brain.
      - Haunters of the Silence [Silence]

When the hornet hangs in the holly hock,
  And the brown bee drones i' the rose,
    And the west is a red-streaked four-o'clock,
      And summer is near its close--
        It's--Oh, for the gate, and the locust lane;
          And dusk, and dew, and home again!
      - In the Lane [Home]

Old homes! old hearts! Upon my soul forever
  Their peace and gladness lie like tears and laughter.
      - Old Homes [Home]

I am a part of all you see
  In Nature: part of all you feel:
    I am the impact of the bee
      Upon the blossom; in the tree
        I am the sap--that shall reveal
          The leaf, the bloom--that flows and flutes
            Up from the darkness through its roots.
      - Penetralia [Nature]

Again let us dream where the land lies sunny
  And live, like the bees, on our hearts' old honey,
    Away from the world that slaves for money--
      Come, journey the way with me.
      - Song of the Road [Dreams]

This is the truth as I see it, my dear,
  Out in the wind and the rain:
    They who have nothing have little to fear,
      Nothing to lose or to gain.
      - The Bellman [Possession]

Though sands be black and bitter black the sea,
  Night lie before me and behind me night,
    And God within far Heaven refuse to light
      The consolation of the dawn for me,--
        Between the shadowy burns of Heaven and Hell,
          It is enough love leaves my soul to dwell
            With memory.
      - The End of All [Memory]
