ROBERT UNDERWOOD JOHNSON
American editor, poet, publicist and diplomatist
(1853 - 1937)

In tears I tossed my coin from Trevi's edge.
  A coin unsordid as a bond of love--
    And, with the instinct of the homing dove,
      I gave to Rome my rendezvous and pledge.
        And when imperious Death
          Has quenched my flame of breath,
            Oh, let me join the faithful shades that throng that fount above.
      - Italian Rhapsody [Rome]

When sunset flows into golden glows,
  And the breath of the night is new,
    Love finds afar eve's eager star--
      That is my thought of you.
      - Star Song [Stars]

They know who keep a broken tryst,
  Till something from the Spring be missed
    We have not truly known the Spring.
      - The Wistful Days [Spring]
