"Poems and Ballads" by Swinburne?

I went looking for Dolores : Notre-Dame de Sept Doluers by Swinburne, and we don't have it. I was amazed! It's in volume 1 here: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/author/832 (For those not following, it's sometimes called "Our Lady of Pain".) Is there an equivalent to the Short Poetry collections for ...

Re: Antiquated speech...

I do find myself using nautical phrases more readily now I'm doing Admiral Cochrane again. A customer called me a sod yesterday, and I made a joke to my colleagues that because I'm a male librarian a lot of customers seems to think I know what I do in bed.
