Contents: Brown sails, blue water and highlanders --
Happy, heedless victims --
Rubs and knocks and competition --
The huge world that roars hard by --
Journeymen in this great whirling London mill --
The memory of the glades and wood --
I liked to get my meals regular and then to prop my back against a bit of rock and snooze a bit, and wake up and think of things going on --
Woman as but a drab thing --
I hardly feel I tread the earth. I only know that thou art mine --
I wish, oh how I wish, I had married an Indian half-breed --
There was a story in which a mole, a beever, a badjerand a water rat was characters --
Its much more sensible to pretend the world is fairy-land than an uninteresting dust heap --
The somewhat inadequate things that really come off --
Noble ideals, steadfast purposes --
The fellow that walks alone.
Responsibility: Matthew Dennison.
