For Homecoming day & night, from Poem A Day, Volume 2. 

from Ashboughs / by Gerard Manley Hopkins

They touch heaven, tabour on it; how their talons sweep
The smouldering enormous winter welkin!

DPF / Carroll

For beaches, cabbages, and kings, from poets.org.

from The Walrus and Carpenter / by Lewis Carroll

They wept like anything to see
Such quantities of sand:
‘If this were only cleared away,’
They said, ‘it would be grand!’
