Madison Cawein
Into the sunsetís turquoise marge
The moon dips, like a pearly barge;
Enchantment sails through magic seas,
To fairyland Hesperides,
Over the hills and away.
Cawein quotes
What magic shall solve us the secret
Of beauty thatís born for an hour?
Some shall reap that never sow
And some shall toil and not attain.

Cawein Madison quotes
At daybreak Morn shall come to me
In raiment of the white winds spun.
Cawein Madison
A rope; a prayer; and an oak-tree near,
And a score of hands to swing him clear.
A grim, black thing for the setting sun
And the moon and the stars to gaze upon.
Madison Cawein quotes
A moonlight traveler in Fancyís land.
