Water Poems : The Old Men Admiring Themselves In The Water by William Butler Yeats

I heard the old, old men say,
'Everything alters,
And one by one we drop away.'
They had hands like claws, and their knees
Were twisted like the old thorn-trees
By the waters.
I heard the old, old men say,
'All that's beautiful drifts away
Like the waters.'

Poem : The Kiss Returned by Jean de La Fontaine

AS WILLIAM walking with his wife was seen,
A man of rank admired her lovely mien.
Who gave you such a charming fair? he cried,
May I presume to kiss your beauteous bride?
With all my heart, replied the humble swain,
You're welcome, sir:--I beg you'll not refrain;
She's at your service: take the boon, I pray;
You'll not such offers meet with ev'ry day.

THE gentleman proceeded as desired;
To get a kiss, alone he had aspired;
So fervently howe'er he pressed her lip,
That Petronella blushed at ev'ry sip.

SEVEN days had scarcely run, when to his arms,
The other took a wife with seraph charms;
And William was allowed to have a kiss,
That filled his soul with soft ecstatic bliss.
Cried he, I wish, (and truly I am grieved)
That when the gentleman a kiss received,
From her I love, he'd gone to greater height,
And with my Petronella passed the night.

Poem : Wind by Raymond A. Foss

The paddle and I
Out in the middle of
The churning lake.
The wind pushed the bow
Turning me around.
I pitched into the wind,
Back erect, leaning
Against the blow,
Making for shore.

The paddle, 24 years old,
Fit comfortably in my palm
Familiar pressure, angle and form
The varnish worn and cracked.
The shaft and handle darkened
With my sweat, dirt, and age.
The blade narrow for river work
As it was on the Allagash
Split and chipped
From years of use.
A treasured momento
Of a wonderful trip.

The waves broke and pitched.
The canoe moved
Like a cork on the water.
Paddle left, back paddle right.
The splash of the water
As I fought to gain control.
Progress slow but real
Cutting along the edge of shore
Easy to measure
Foot by foot.
Away from shore again
Buffeted by the air once more.

An hour from home
Muscles taut
And cramped
Torso twisted
Fighting the storm
As I contort
To steer the canoe.

Sonnet Poems : Holy Sonnet IV: Oh My Black Soul! Now Art Thou Summoned by John Donne

Oh my black soul! now art thou summoned
By sickness, death's herald, and champion;
Thou art like a pilgrim, which abroad hath done
Treason, and durst not turn to whence he is fled;
Or like a thief, which till death's doom be read,
Wisheth himself delivered from prison,
But damned and haled to execution,
Wisheth that still he might be imprisoned.
Yet grace, if thou repent, thou canst not lack;
But who shall give thee that grace to begin?
Oh make thy self with holy mourning black,
And red with blushing, as thou art with sin;
Or wash thee in Christ's blood, which hath this might
That being red, it dyes red souls to white
