ON THE SEA
John Keats
It keeps eternal whisperings around Desolate
shores, and with its mighty swell Gluts twice
ten thousand Caverns, till the spell Of Hecate
leaves them their old shadowy sound. Often 'tis
in such gentle temper found, That scarcely will
the very smallest shell Be mov'd for days from
where it sometime fell, When last the winds of
Heaven were unbound. Oh ye! who have your
eye-balls vex'd and tir'd, Feast them upon the
wideness of the Sea Oh ye! who have your
eye-balls vex'd and tir'd, Feast them upon the
wideness of the Sea Oh ye! whose ears are
dinn'd with uproar rude, Or fed too much with
cloying melody - Sit ye near some old Cavern's
Mouth, and brood Until ye start, as if the
sea-nymphs quir'd!
24
A SOLDIER
Robert Frost
He is that fallen lance that lies as hurled, That
lies unlifted now, come dew, come rust, But still
lies pointed as it ploughed the dust. If we who
sight along it round the world, See nothing
worthy to have been its mark, It is because like
men we look too near, Forgetting that as fitted
to the sphere, Our missiles always make too short
an arc. They fall, they rip the grass, they
intersect The curve of earth, and striking, break
their own They make us cringe for metal-point on
stone. But this we know, the obstacle that
checked And tripped the body, shot the spirit
on Further than target ever showed or shone.

The Isles of Greece
George Gordon Byron
The isles of Greece! the isles of Greece! Where
burning Sappho loved and sung, Where grew the
arts of war and peace, -- Where Delos rose and
Phoebus sprung! Eternal summer gilds them
yet, But all, except their sun, is set. The
Scian and the Teian muse, The hero's harp, the
lover's lute, Have found the fame your shores
refuse Their place of birth alone is mute To
sounds which echo further west Than your sires'
"Islands of the Blest." The mountains look on
Marathon -- And Marathon looks on the sea And
musing there an hour alone, I dream'd that Greece
might yet be free For, standing on the Persians'
grave, I could not deem myself a slave.

fire, Came a plaintive voice from the pot, O,
why since we sprang from the self-same
root, Should you kill me with anger hot?
