RICHARD LE GALLIENNE
English poet, critic, journalist, writer and man of letters
(1866 - 1947)

With pipe and book at close of day,
  Oh, what is sweeter? mortal say.
    It matters not what book on knee,
      Old Izaak or the Odyssey,
        It matters not meerschaum or clay.
      - in "Volumes in Folio" [Tobacco]

Great is advertisement! 'tis almost fate;
  But, little mushroom-men, of puff-ball fame.
    Ah, do you dream to be mistaken great
      And to be really great are just the same?
      - Alfred Tennyson [Greatness]

Third act of the eternal play!
  In poster-like emblazonries
    "Autumn once more begins today"--
      'Tis written all across the trees
        In yellow like Chinese.
      - The Eternal Play [Autumn]

Art, thou hast many infamies,
  But not an infamy like this.
    O snap the fife and still the drum
      And show the monster as she is.
      - The Illusion of War [War]
