God Neither Known Nor Loved By The World

Ye linnets, let us try, beneath this grove,
Which shall be loudest in our Maker's praise!
In quest of some forlorn retreat I rove,
For all the world is blind, and wanders from his ways.

Who takes me to a beautiful fest.

Her smile and nature is her best feature.

Since all alike my songs and praises be
To one, of one, still such, and ever so.

Venus And Adonis

Even as the sun with purple-coloured face
Had ta'en his last leave of the weeping morn,

Hunting he loved, but love he laughed to scorn.

Mandalay

By the old Moulmein Pagoda, lookin' eastward to the sea,
There's a Burma girl a-settin', and I know she thinks o' me;
For the wind is in the palm-trees, and the temple-bells they say:
"Come you back, you British soldier; come you back to Mandalay!"

Helen In Egypt, Eidolon, Book Iii: 4

<i>Helen herself seems almost ready for this sacrifice-at least, for the immolation of herself before this greatest love of Achilles, his dedication to 'his own ship' and the figurehead, 'an idol or eidolon . . . a mermaid, Thetis upon the prow.'</i>

Did her eyes slant in the old way?
was she Greek or Egyptian?

Stanzas To Love

Or will ABSENCE subdue the keen rigours of pain,
And the swift wing of TIME bring the balsam of rest?

Friendship

You can buy, if you've got money, all you need to drink and eat,

For the gentle hand of friendship that you need you cannot pay.
