Norman Rowland Gale Poems

Golf Steals Our Youth

Have you seen the golfers airy
Prancing forth to their vagary,
Just as frisky in their gaiters
As a flock of Grecian Satyrs,

Old Letters

Last night some yellow letters fell
From out a scrip I found by chance;
Among them was the silent ghost,
The spirit of my first romance:


Bartholomew is very sweet,
From sandy hair to rosy feet.

The Ballade Of The Glutton

I'm greedy by nature, and often in vain
Have lingered too long o'er the succulent hare,
Accepting the jelly, ignoring the pain,
Intent on receiving far more than my share.

The Country Faith

HERE in the country’s heart
Where the grass is green,
Life is the same sweet life
As it e’er hath been.
