I went back an old-time lane
I went out to the farthest meadow
I went to her who loveth me no more
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree.
I will go back to the great sweet mother....
I will make you brooches and toys for your delight
I will not break the tryst, my dear
I will not have the mad Clytie
I will paint her as I see her ..
I will reach far down in the pit of sorrow.
I wish, because the sweetness of your passing
I wish I could remember the first day.
I wish I lived in a caravan
I wish I was in de land ob cotton
I wish I were where Helen lies .
I wish that my Room had a Floor .
I wonder, by my troth, what thou and I
I wonder do you feel to-day...
I wonder in what Isle of Bliss.
I would not give my Irish wife
I would not live alway-live alway below
"I would,” says Fox, "a tax devise"
I write. He sits beside my chair
I wrote some lines once on a time
I wus mighty good-lookin' when I wus young
I'd a dream tonight ...
I'd be a Butterfly born in a bower.
I'd rather have Fingers than Toes
I'd "read” three hours. Both notes and text
If a man who turnips cries .
If all the world and love were young.
If all the world were apple-pie...
If aught of oaten stop, or pastoral song
If doughty deeds my lady please ..
If, dumb too long, the drooping Muse hath stayed.
If ever there lived a Yankee lad..
If I could choose my paradise. .
If I could know that after all
If I could shut the gate against my thoughts
If I had as much money as I could spend
If I had never known your face at all
If I had thought thou couldst have died .
If I have faltered more or less .
"If I may trust your love,” she cried
If I shall ever win the home in heaven.
If I should die to-night
If I should fall asleep one day
If I were dead, and, in my place
"If I were dead,” you'd sometimes say, Poor Child..
If I were told that I must die to-morrow
If it be pleasant to look on, stalled in the packed serai
If life be as a flame that death doth kill
If life were never bitter
If love be life, I long to die
If Love were jester at the court of Death .
If love were what the rose is.
If my face could only promise that its color would remain
If only in dreams may man be fully blest.
If rest is sweet at shut of day
If rightly tuneful bards decide
If she be made of white and red
If she but knew that I am weeping

In slumbers of midnight the sailor-boy lay
In spite of all the learned have said .
