A Flower Given to my Daughter

Frail the white rose and frail are
Her hands that gave
Whose soul is sere and paler
Than time's wan wave.

Rosefrail and fair--yet frailest
A wonder wild
In gentle eyes thou veilest,
My blueveined child.

James Joyce, Trieste, 1913

we real cool - gwendolyn brooks

The Pool Players
Seven at the Golden Shovel


We real cool. We
Left school. We

Lurk late. We
Strike straight. We

Sing sin. We
Thin gin. We

Jazz June. We
Die soon.
