  Life has loveliness to sell,   All beautiful and splendid things,  Blue waves whitened on a cliff,   Soaring fire that sways and sings,  And children's faces looking up  Holding wonder like a cup.

  Life has loveliness to sell,   Music like a curve of gold,  Scent of pine trees in the rain,   Eyes that love you, arms that hold,  And for your spirit's still delight,  Holy thoughts that star the night.

  Spend all you have for loveliness,   Buy it and never count the cost;  For one white singing hour of peace   Count many a year of strife well lost,  And for a breath of ecstasy  Give all you have been, or could be.


  Dreamily over the roofs   The cold spring rain is falling;  Out in the lonely tree   A bird is calling, calling.

  Slowly over the earth   The wings of night are falling;  My heart like the bird in the tree   Is calling, calling, calling.

Night Song at Amalfi

  I asked the heaven of stars   What I should give my love—  It answered me with silence,   Silence above.

  I asked the darkened sea   Down where the fishers go—  It answered me with silence,   Silence below.

  Oh, I could give him weeping,   Or I could give him song—  But how can I give silence,   My whole life long?

The Look

  Strephon kissed me in the spring,   Robin in the fall,  But Colin only looked at me   And never kissed at all.

  Strephon's kiss was lost in jest,   Robin's lost in play,  But the kiss in Colin's eyes   Haunts me night and day.

A Winter Night

  My window-pane is starred with frost,   The world is bitter cold to-night,  The moon is cruel, and the wind   Is like a two-edged sword to smite.

  God pity all the homeless ones,   The beggars pacing to and fro,  God pity all the poor to-night   Who walk the lamp-lit streets of snow.

  My room is like a bit of June,   Warm and close-curtained fold on fold,  But somewhere, like a homeless child,   My heart is crying in the cold.

A Cry

  Oh, there are eyes that he can see,   And hands to make his hands rejoice,  But to my lover I must be   Only a voice.

  Oh, there are breasts to bear his head,   And lips whereon his lips can lie,  But I must be till I am dead   Only a cry.


  I gave my first love laughter,   I gave my second tears,  I gave my third love silence   Through all the years.

  My first love gave me singing,   My second eyes to see,  But oh, it was my third love   Who gave my soul to me.

But Not to Me

  The April night is still and sweet   With flowers on every tree;  Peace comes to them on quiet feet,      But not to me.

  My peace is hidden in his breast   Where I shall never be;  Love comes to-night to all the rest,      But not to me.

Song at Capri

  When beauty grows too great to bear   How shall I ease me of its ache,  For beauty more than bitterness   Makes the heart break....
