EPIGRAMS

POETRY

But sees too deep for laughter;
Her touch is a vibration and a light
From worlds before and after.

Yes; by your pleasure,
Poetry is Thought, in princeliest attire,

THE YEAR'S MINSTRELSY

Summer, a music without hint of death:
Autumn, a cadence lingeringly long:
Winter, a pause;--the Minstrel-Year takes breath.

[William Watson
