A GREAT READ FOR THE ROMANTIC SOULS OF THIS WORLD, especially for St. Valentine’s day!The verse in this volume were selected from works that had appeared in Various periodicals of the time, LIFE, TRUTH, TOWN TOPICS, VOGUE, and MUNSEY'S MAGAZINE during the five years 1893-1898, the 19th C’s Romantic period, and whose editors kindly gave Tom Hall permission to republish them. So popular was this collection of poetry, that it had at least six print runs.This volume is made up of two parts. The first contains the more serious poetry of the heart and the second part more light hearted and sometimes comical poems about love. However, of special mention are “In Old Madrid” and on amore light hearted note “A Slight Surprise”. But these are not just poems for the young, for love belongs to all ages. Here we recommend “Love’s Return” about a grey haired man whose heart is bursting because he has found love again at a later stage in life; and never fear , if you have been rejected or if your heart has been broken by a love lost to another, there is a poem for you too. Here we recommend “Hard Hit”, “Rejected” and “What It Is”.We ask you to be aware that these poems were penned over one hundred years ago and the protocols for dating and courting in the 19th C. were vastly different to those of today. So, when reading these poems to your loved one, think Jane Austen, Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet and you’re sure to deliver the prose with all the meaning intended and with a degree of elegance missing from the current age. Oh, don’t forget the chocolates, roses and champagne, for they, with the reciting of a romantic poem are sure to win over an unsure heart.NOTE: The contents of this volume are not related to the 1920 silent movie, of a similar name, neither is it related to the 1981 novel, also of a similar name. It is quite simply a collection of ninety-one enjoyable, short poems which relate to matters of the heart. Some are solemn and others more jovial in nature, and, with the exception of one or two, all are one page or less in length which makes for an easy and pleasant read.This volume has been especially produced to help raise funds for that charity of charities.

The Graces, on a summer day,
Grew serious for a moment; yea,
They thought in rivalry to trace
The outline of a perfect face.
Each used a rosebud for a brush,
And, while it glowed with sunset's blush,
Each painted on the evening sky,
And each a star used for the eye.
They finished. Each a curtaining cloud
Drew back, and each exclaimed aloud:
"Behold, we three have drawn the same,
From the same model!" Ah, her name?
I know. I saw the pictures grow.
I saw them falter, fade, and go.
I know the model. Oft she lures
My heart. The face, my sweet, was yours.
The notes still float upon the air,
Just as they did that night.
I see the old piano there,—
Oh, that again I might!
Her young voice haunts my eager ear;
Her hair in the candle-light
Still seems an aureole,—a tear
Is my spectroscope to-night.
I hear her trembling tell me "No,"
And I know that she answered right
But I throw a kiss to the stars, and though
She be wed she will dream to-night.
Over the green fields, over the snow,
Something I send thee, something I throw.
No one can guess it; no one can know.
Light as a feather, quick as the eye;
Thin as a sunbeam, deep as the sky;
Worthless, but something a queen could not buy.
Ah, you have caught it, love! How do I know?
Sweet, there are secrets lost ages ago.
Lovers learn all of them. Smile not,—'tis so.
Before her mirror, robed in spotless white,
She stands and, wondering, looks at her own face,
Amazed at its new loveliness and grace.
Smiling and blushing at the pretty sight,
So fraught is she with innocent delight,
She feels the tender thrill of his embrace
Crushing her lilies into flowery lace;
Then sighs and starts, even as though from fright.
Then fleets before her eyes the happy past;
She turns from it with petulant disdain,
And tries to read the future,—but in vain.
Blank are its pages from the first to last.
She hears faint music, smiles, and leaves the room
Just as one rosebud more bursts into bloom.
Give you a problem for your midnight toil,—
One you can study till your hair is white
And never solve and never guess aright,
Although you burn to dregs your midnight oil?
O Sage, I give one that will make you moil.
Just take one weakling little woman's heart.
Prepare your patience, furbish up your art.
How now? Did I not see you then recoil?
Tell me how many times it has known pain;
