You Can't Can Love

I don't know how the fishes feel, but I can't help thinking it odd,
That a gay young flapper of a female eel should fall in love with a cod.
Yet-that's exactly what she did and it only goes to prove,
That' what evr you do you can't put the lid on that crazy feeling Love.

The Sonnets Cvii - Not Mine Own Fears, Nor The Prophetic Soul

Supposed as forfeit to a confin'd doom.

Daphne

Daphne! Ladon's daughter, Daphne! Set thyself in silver light,
Take thy thoughts of fairest texture, weave them into words of white -
Weave the rhyme of rose-lipped Daphne, nymph of wooded stream and shade,
Flying love of bright Apollo, - fleeting type of faultless maid!

The autumn's gaudy livery whose gold

Far from the zone of the blossom and treeâ??
