Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Frost at Midnight

21 January 2008
Vol. 7, No. 4
poetry, classic

The Frost performs its secret ministry,

Unhelped by any wind. The owlet's cry

Came loud—and hark, again! loud as before.

The inmates of my cottage, all at rest,

Have left me to that solitude, which suits

Abstruser musings: save that at my side

My cradled infant slumbers peacefully.

Monody on the Death of Chatterton

11 September 2007
Vol. 7, No. 3
poetry, classic, rhyme

Now prompts the Muse poetic lays,

And high my bosom beats with love of Praise!

But, Chatterton! methinks I hear thy name,

For cold my Fancy grows, and dead each Hope of Fame.
