Dunluce Castle
To-day upon thy ruined walls
The flowers wave flags of truce,
For time has proved thy conqueror,
And tamed thy strength, Dunluce!
A Wild Rose
A blushing wild pink rose,
    By tangled woods and ways,
A passing sweet that goes
    With summer days.
A Caged Bird
High at the window in her cage,
    The old canary sits and sings,
Nor sees across the curtain pass
    The shadow of a swallow's wings.
A Country Boy In Winter

Down in a field, one day in June,
The flowers all bloomed together,
Boat Song
Oh, rest your oars and let me drift
    While all the stars come out to see!
The birds are talking in their sleep
    As we go by so silently.
On Star Island
High on the lichened ledges, like
    A lonely sea-fowl on its perch,
Blown by the cold sea winds, it stands,
