And see the way you lived, but I don't know!

Experienced during sleep,

Still it has a power to rejoice & be depressed.

And the soul bends down to wait;
Like the stealthy lord of the jungle,
The white man calls his mate.

When what I seek, my weary travel's end,
Doth teach that case and that repose to say,
“Thus far the miles are measured from thy friend!”

A Song In The Desert

Friend, thou beholdest the lightning? Who has the charge of it,
To decree which rock-ridge shall receive, shall be chosen for targe of it?
Which crown among palms shall go down, by the thunderbolt broken;
While the floods drown the sere wadis where no bud is token?

Who loved the very ground on which he trod.

Of wind that caught against the house a moment,

Dressed, but dishevelled from some hours of sleep,

Around her knees, into each ear

Of mankind, who forget their Father's face

Now ere I slept, my prayer had been that I might see my way
To do the will of Christ, our Lord and Master, day by day;
And with this prayer upon my lips, I knew not that I dreamed,
But suddenly the world of night a pandemonium seemed.

An' 'e wonders because 'e is frequent deceased
Ere 'e's fit for to serve as a soldier.

To his beast? Men are worthless, to trap them
Use the cheapest bait of all, but never

Feels at his side the throb of the gold hilt
