To a Friend Who Sent Me Some Roses by John Keats 

As late I rambled in the happy fields,
   What time the sky-lark shakes the tremulous dew

   From his lush clover covert;—when anew
Adventurous knights take up their dinted shields:
I saw the sweetest flower wild nature yields,
   A fresh-blown musk-rose; ’twas the first that threw

   Its sweets upon the summer: graceful it grew
As is the wand that queen Titania wields.
And, as I feasted on its fragrancy,
   I thought the garden-rose it far excell’d:

But when, O Wells! thy roses came to me
   My sense with their deliciousness was spell’d:
Soft voices had they, that with tender plea
   Whisper’d of peace, and truth, and friendliness unquell’d.

Thumbprint by Eve Merriam

In the heel of my thumb
are whorls, whirls, wheels

in a unique design:
mine alone.
What a treasure to own!
My own flesh, my own feelings.

No other, however grand or base,
can ever contain the same.
My signature,
thumbing the pages of my time.

My universe key,
my singularity.
Impress, implant,
I am myself

of all my atom parts I am the sum.
And out of my blood and my brain
I make my own interior weather,
my own sun and rain.

Imprint my mark upon the world,
whatever I shall become.

Autumn by T. E. Hulme

A touch of cold in the Autumn night—
I walked abroad,

And saw the ruddy moon lean over a hedge
Like a red-faced farmer.
I did not stop to speak, but nodded,
And round about were the wistful stars

With white faces like town children.
