Excerpt from Studies in Verse

I scarcely know if you will care
To read the verses that I send,
Will like a passage here and there,
And feel "the writer is my friend."

Mere studies they from art and life,
A woodland dream, a breeze of song,
A wave-watched peace, scenes in the strife
Of human souls with sin and wrong,

Chance things that thrill'd

Overview

Excerpt from Studies in Verse

I scarcely know if you will care
To read the verses that I send,
Will like a passage here and there,
And feel "the writer is my friend."

Mere studies they from art and life,
A woodland dream, a breeze of song,
A wave-watched peace, scenes in the strife
Of human souls with sin and wrong,

Chance things that thrill'd me with delight,
Like broken strains of melody,
Half heard in a tempestuous night
Through all the turmoil of the sea;

Which thus I roughly sought to draw,
Even as they faded from my view,
They are the visions that you saw,
And so I send my book to you.

However small its worth-may be,
'Twill speak of things you used to praise
And whisper to your memory
A kindly thought of other days.
