HOME, SWEET HOME WITH VARIATIONS: 4. AUSTIN DOBSON, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: At home alone, o nomades
Last Line: At home, alone.
Subject(s): Dobson, Austin (1840-1921); Payne, John Howard (1791-1852)


At home alone, O Nomades,
Although Maecenas' marble frieze
Stand not between you and the sky,
Nor Persian luxury supply
Its rosy surfeit, find ye ease.
Tempt not the far AEgean breeze;
With home-made wine and books that please,
To duns and bores the door deny
At home, alone.
Strange joys may lure. Your deities
Smile here alone. Oh, give me these:
Low eaves, where birds familiar fly,
And peace of mind, and, fluttering by,
My Lydia's graceful draperies,
At home, alone.
