Random Poetry List Concludes

I began the Random Poetry List four years ago, intending it to be a project for 2005. With the vagaries of blogging, though, I ended up doing it in three phases. Here is a list of all the poems blogged in the Random Poetry List:

    "The Winter Traveler"

    Random Poetry List XCVIII

    God help thee, Traveler, on thy journey far;
       The wind is bitter keen,—the snow o'erlays
       The hidden pits, and dangerous hollow-ways,
    And darkness will involve thee.—No kind star
    To-night will guide thee, Traveler,—and the war
       Of winds and elements, on thy head will break,
       And in thy agonizing ear the shriek,
    Of spirits howling on their stormy car,
    Will often ring appalling—I portend
       A dismal night—and on my wakeful bed
       Thoughts, Traveler, of thee, will fill my head,
    And him, who rides where winds and waves contend,
    And strives, rude cradled on the seas, to guide
    His lonely bark through the tempestuous tide.

    Henry Kirke White (English, 1785-1806)
