|A. E. Housman. (18591936)|
| Now, of my three score years and ten,|
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy years a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.
| Loveliest of Trees.|
| When I was one-and-twenty|
I heard a wise man say:
Give crowns and pounds and guineas
But not your heart away.
| A Shropshire Lad.|
| To-day, the road all runners come,|
Shoulder-high, we bring you home,
And set you at your threshold down,
Townsman of a stiller town.
| To an Athlete dying young.|
|William Roscoe Thayer. (1859 ?)|
| You shall not change, but a nobler race of men|
Shall walk beneath the stars and wander by the shore;
I can not guess their glory, but I think the sky and sea
Will bring to them more gladness than they brought to us of yore.
| Man in Nature.|
|Nixon Waterman. (1859 ?)|
| No man can feel himself alone|
The while he bravely stands
Between the best friends ever known
His two good, honest hands.
