In pretty worship of my withered hands
Forgetting who I am, and how the sands
Of such a life as mine run red and gold

Were the bodies of men from far and wide
Who, motion past, were nevertheless not dead.

Would not trill out his glee so gaily,

Of linear stalks and spheroid blooms were prized

And when with mathematics they explored

With All Thy Gifts, America

With all thy gifts, America,
(Standing secure, rapidly tending, overlooking the world,)
Power, wealth, extent, vouchsafed to thee, With these, and like of these, vouchsafed to thee,
What if one gift thou lackest? (the ultimate human problem never solving;)

about seeing your life flash before your eyes
while you drown, as if panic, or the act of submergence,
could startle time into such compression, crushing

That only Modred's opportunity,
Seized in the dark of Britain, could have hushed
And ended in a night. For Lancelot,

Were no harder, the thin grass
Clothed them more warmly than the coarse
Shirts our small bones.

The Feast Of The Virgins

Beneath the arch of the breezy elms
The feast is spread by the murmuring river.
With his battle-spear and his bow and quiver,

Out of a towering adamantine crag
A mighty figure, stately, giant-limbed,
And with the face of a Homeric god.

There is no separate celestial city built,
Is created by illusory mind,
Heavenly bliss is being in state of peaceful environments.

Like the full moon out of a perfumed sea
Thine image from the waves of blissful sound
Rose and thy sudden light illumined me.

The Soul's Destiny

In the liquid vault of ether hung the starry gems of light,
Blazing with unwonted splendor on the ebon brow of night;
Far across the arching concave like a train of silver lay,
Nebulous, and white, and dreamy, heaven's star-wrought Milky Way.

Withheld revelations,
The songs that I may not utter;
They lead me, they flatter, they woo me.

The willow and the rose-
A little while, and what comes after
No man knows.

deeds are but vapors; and flesh

The steam, the reek, the fume, of prayer
Blown outward for a million years,
Becomes a mist between the spheres,
And waking Sentience struggles there.

Day That I Have Loved

Tenderly, day that I have loved, I close your eyes,
And smooth your quiet brow, and fold your thin dead hands.
The grey veils of the half-light deepen; colour dies.

Through the horn or the ivory portal,
But he wist not which of the two.

Of the old memorial days.

The Sea-change

Where river and ocean meet in a great tempestuous frown,
Beyond the bar, where on the dunes the white-capped rollers break;
Above, one windmill stands forlorn on the arid, grassy down:
I will set my sail on a stormy day and cross the bar and seek

Phaethon--attempted In Galliambic Measure

At the coming up of Phoebus the all-luminous charioteer,
Double-visaged stand the mountains in imperial multitudes,
And with shadows dappled men sing to him, Hail, O Beneficent!
For they shudder chill, the earth-vales, at his clouding, shudder to

Wrought by God for His own men.
