George Santayana Poems

  • Sonnet Vii
    I would I might forget that I am I,
    And break the heavy chain that binds me fast,
    Whose links about myself my deeds have cast.
    What in the bodyâ??s tomb doth buried lie ...
  • Sonnet Xliii
    The candor of the gods is in thy gaze,
    The strength of Diane in thy virgin hand,
    Commanding as the goddess might command,
    And lead her lovers into higher ways. ...
  • Before A Statue Of Achilles
    I

    Behoild Pelides with his yellow hair,
