  • I wish I was dead,
    And lay deep in the grave.
    I've a pain in my head,
    I wish I was dead.
    In a coffin of lead—
    With the Wise and the Brave—
    I wish I was dead,
    And lay deep in the grave.
    • "Jean Francois", from Orpheus in Mayfair and Other Stories and Sketches
  • Here's the lily, here the rose
    Her full chalice shall disclose;
    Here's narcissus wet with dew,
    Windflower and the violet blue.
    Wear the garland I have made;
    Crowned with it, put pride away;
    For the wreath that blooms must fade;
    Thou thyself must fade some day, Rhodocleia.
    • "The Garland", from Orpheus in Mayfair and Other Stories and Sketches
