    We live, but a world has passed away
With the years that perished to make us men.
          The Mulberries.

Not into evil wrought:

Betrayed and baffled still:
For the heart from itself kept,
Our thanksgiving accept.
          Thanksgiving.

  No doubt, as the poet sings;
But within her lips, the petals,
  Lurks a cruel bee that stings.
          The sarcastic Fair.
