The Goblins' Christmas

Description: 

The Goblins are gracious to the wise people now, but they were not always so. A long, long time ago, on a Christmas-eve, the Fairy-folk were having great sport. All the little people of the Unseen-world had gathered together in the Earth-realm. There were Brownies, and Gnomes, and Elves; even some little Cherubs had joined them. They were having a wild dance and a gay time when who should appear but Kris Kringle! Now the Fairies did not know that he was a Magician, or Seer, and so they tried to make sport of him.

The Hundred Best English Poems

Description: 

Children dear, was it yesterday We heard the sweet bells over the bay? In the caverns where we lay, Through the surf and through the swell, The far-off sound of a silver bell?

Some Broken Twigs

Description: 

A glow of life shines from the leaf-stripped limbs, In sheltered nooks snowbirds are singing hymns. The sycamore shafts gleam and shine afar, Down by the river where the black oaks are. The goldenrod now droops his fuzzy head; There by my fence, leaves make a fluffy bed. They mulch my flower seed down in the loam; Beyond below the tall sedge grasses moan. Seared grass curls firmly over tender sprigs, And my rose bush there curves its brown thorned twigs. Beneath my window, tulip bulbs lay snug, Quite safe and warm in earthy winter rug.

Prussian Blue

Description: 

The walls don't lack sincerity, here, or be accused of "ordinary," what with the bleached remains of a carbon skull, a yellowing pike head of uncertain girth, adder-like fangs positioned like the Bear Head gasping for the night air one wall over or the old pool table.

Indian Legends of Minnesota

Description: 

The gossips point to him that's left alone-- "He, too, will die, for half himself is gone!" At first, distraught he seemed--unlike a child; He ate not, slept not, neither spoke nor smiled. Then sought the forest--wandered there alone For days.

Rookie Rhymes

Description: 

The captain, who, like Nero Observing Rome in flames, Was seated on a packing-box Perusing all the names. "Mr. Whitney, won't you tell us Of patrols both front and rear? Speak up, Mr. Whitney, So the men in back can hear."

A Pushcart at the Curb

Description: 

The promiscuous wind wafts idly from the quays A smell of ships and curious woods and casks And a sweetness from the gorse on the flowerstand And brushes with his cool careless cheek the cheeks Of those on the street.

The Kitten's Garden of Verses

Description: 

A Lion large and fierce to see. I'll mew so loud that Cook in fright Will give me all the cream in sight. And anyone who dares to say "Poor Puss" to me will rue the day. Then having swallowed him I'll creep Into the Guest Room Bed to sleep.
