Collection of beautiful verse from a mysterious poet & wordsmith

“Lyrics & Lines” by ‘Carolus’ is published by Bollin Publishing Ltd.

About the Book:

Written under the pseudonym "Carolus", Lyrics & Lines is a book of poems written circa 1890 - 1900, possibly as a gift to one he had loved and lost.
Love, humour, moralisation and the macabre all come together in a most readable and enjoyable manner.

Who he was, when and exactly where he lived and his age at the time he wrote this book are unknown. That he was a modest man can be gleaned from his description of himself as "a poetaster".

Beautifully written; these poems should not only appeal to lovers of poetry but to those who would never normally consider reading verse.

A few lines of verse from four of his poems to give you a flavour:

"Perhaps you will wonder what terrible trouble
Has ended my pleasure as bursteth a bubble;
It pains me to tell you, but briefly 'tis that
My darling canary's been poached by my cat."

~~~~~~~~~~~

"Lift up thy voice my Love and sweetly warble,
Carol a song than nightingale more clear;
Soft let me kiss thy throat as white as marble
That shyly tells thy love into mine ear."

~~~~~~~~~~~

"By yonder bridge that spans the Avon 0'er,
Whose mighty arches stretch from shore to shore,
I chanced to wander once in careless wise,
Content alone to muse and moralize-"

~~~~~~~~~~~

"God's purpose is unknown, we all are blind.
The way he wishes never can we find;
So that unanswered is the question still,
Why do we live, what purpose great fulfill?"
