AURORA TO ZEPHYR 

I COME, I am tracing 

Thy path from afar, 
The moon outfacing, 

And morning star. 
Look, look, I am leaving, 

The pine-covered height 
For the valley, and cleaving 

A pathway of light 
To Zephyr my love. 



Thou hast set the bough swinging 

In garden and grove, 
To the voice of thy singing 

The white lilies move. 
What censers are shaken ! 

What dew-bells are tost ! 
What joys reawaken ! 

What sorrows are lost ! 

Zephyr, Zephyr, my love.

SONGS AND LYRICS 

Our rapture of meeting 

All hasten to share, 
Our first kiss of greeting 

Will thrill through the air: 
Come, the rose-helted 

Clouds fly apace, 
All heaven is melted 

In our embrace. 

Zephyr, Zephyr, my love.

FLOWERS THAT SPRING FROM 
STEMS OF THOUGHT 

FLOWERS that spring from steins of thought, 

Hope and joy diffusing, 
By what magic are you wrought 

Out of sombre musing? 



Wherefore into sudden bloom 
Do you shoot and cluster, 

Filling meditation's room 
With unwanted lustre? 



What has chanced, what changed, what wins 

This sweet salutation? 
Is it thus the Muse begins 

Some divine dictation? 



Is it what the linnet knows ? 

Is it Nature's gladness? 
Or some hope that brighter grows 

From the dews of sadness? 



Into some new field of space 
Has our planet slanted, 

From its evil-haunted ways 
By new stars enchanted ? 
11 



SPRING SONG 

BREATH of Spring, what fitful numbers 

Move in step with thine ? 
What desire that in me slumbers 

Owns thy call divine? 



Birds, enlist me in your quire, 
Stream, and tasselled tree, 

Sunny leaf, and bud of fire, 
You our audience be. 



Spring, I catch thy quick pulsation, 
Words and phrases throng, 

But thy careless exultation 
Beats not in my song. 



12 



DISCOVERED 



DEARER than the tranquil joy of dream, 
Fairer than the break of day thou art, 

In thy movements and thine eyes' still beam 
Dwells a charm of power to sway the heart. 



In what web of magic art thou wound? 

To what measure does thy spirit move ? 
Art thou in some subtle sorrow bound? 

Dost thou stand within the reach of love? 



13 



A BURDEN OF SPRING 

DEAD as falls the dead leaf 

Falls day on day, 
On peach-bloom and apple-bloom 

And the white thorn of May. 
Did the trees in Eden 

Their blossoms renew 
When the pair were exiled 

For whom they blew? 



Nightingale, thou wanton, 

With thy pretty tune 
Hast my love enchanted, 

To wander 'neath the moon. 
Through wild-wood, through waste-land 

He stumbles in fear, 
Calls my name at midnight 

By the silver mere. 



Moor-hen and marish-fowl 

Hear him when he calls, 
I hear, but when I answer 

My voice no more enthrals ; 
And while I stand and listen 

Moments grow to years, 
Weep, misty twilight, 

Weep my tears. 
14 



EVE'S SONG 

SWART Night and sweet Day, 
Together wont to play 
In the archway of the Dawn, 
Veil and shadow withdrawn 
And cast upon the stars : 
What is it now that mars 
Your entertainment free, 
That ye no more rejoice 
To hear each other's voice 
Of golden amity? 
One vexed with evil dreams, 
And one reluctant seems 
To show her burning face. 
Do you share in our disgrace ? 



15 



BOY AND GIRL 



I SAID " Good-bye, I am gone ! 

She looked up wistfully : 
"Tarry but over another dawn, 
To-morrow say Good-bye." 
Alas ! hours pass ! 



I went on the morrow and bade 
Good-bye to my love alone ; 

She eyed me coldly and said 

" We thought you already gone." 
Ah ! well, farewell ! 



I speed through the avenue now, 

But the rooks, who are never alone, 

Are calling from bough to bough 
"We thought him already gone." 
Gone ! Gone ! already gone ! 



There is only the boy at the gate ; 

I am sad, I know not why; 
I will give him a piece of silver 
To bid me a kind good-bye. 
Alas ! hours pass ! 
16 



O HOURS OF TRANQUIL MUSING" 



O HOURS of tranquil musing 
When I was seizing, losing, 

Some charm of woven rhyme, 
And mid forms of fancy choosing 
The fairest, none refusing 

That would run in tune and time. 



Now fixed to one impression, 
With all my wits in session 

Over a look or word : 
One theme in full possession, 
And with a fine discretion 

To all the rest preferred. 



O innocent idle pleasure 
In Nature's golden leisure, 

Of your loss shall I complain? 
When with your toys I measure 
My rich, new-quarried treasure, 

To regret you shall I feign? 



17 



GARDENER, HAVE YOU SEEN A 
ROSE? 

GARDENER, have you seen a rose 
Parti-coloured, newly blown, 

Where midsummer winds disclose 
All the pastimes they have known? 

One her bosom bore to-day, 

See it is not cast away. 



Would you know it? Tis a scroll 
Vermeil-tinct, with edges white, 

From whose leaves you might unroll 
Wisdom filled with love's delight ; 

Ask not what it was before, 

Now 'tis one her bosom bore. 



18 



THE CORNFIELD 

LOVE I spied one summer morn, 
No higher than the poppy stand 

Tip-toe, 
And all aglow, 

Pouting his lips to blow 
The gossamer over the yellow-headed corn ; 

While he whistled to the breeze 

To bear it to the seas, 
Where Venus his mother was born, 

"You are light, so away, 

You are fickle and free, 
All of your sort are company; 

Are you for sport? 

Then to my mother's court, 

Go and dance with the spray," 

Said Love, and he lay 
With his curls down again in the corn. 



19 



WHAT GIVEST THOU ME IN PASSING? 



WHAT givest thou me in passing? 

Thy beauty ? Be not proud ; 
For me the wave is glassing 

Blue heaven without a cloud. 



What light on me is breaking? 

Thy smile? Be not so coy, 
Round me to spring awaking 

Earth laughs and leaps for joy. 



20 



ADIEU 

ART thou again on the wing 

Southward, over the snows, 
Sweet swallow that made our spring? 

Wilt thou now our summer close ? 
Over the stream, and abroad in the air, 

A dead leaf is whirling, 
And under my foot is the rose. 



21 



FIRST LOVE 

Penzance. 

WE come together idly, 

Idly the vessel dips, 
Scarce does a word of greeting 

Find breath to pass my lips. 



A sidelong glance I venture, 
And a random word I speak, 

When a sudden smile indenteth 
The fairness of her cheek. 



Then as if in some strange fashion 
We both had heard good news, 

A babble of talk and laughter 
At I know not what ensues. 



As when in a town beleaguered, 
That looks famine in the face, 

At dead of night a trooper 
Shouts in the market place : 
22 



FIRST LOVE 

"Good news! Good news!" Each burgher 

Hastes to unbar his door, 
The women behind him cluster, 

And into the street they pour ; 



Plying question after question, 

For the answer brings fresh delight ;- 

So with us, whate'er we hazard, 
Is miraculously right. 



And within me a voice repeateth 
Can it be true? Time slips, 

She is called. I linger idly, 
Idly the vessel dips. 



23 



THE FIRST QUARREL 

BEND and bow, all-waving flow, 
Falling, rising, airily, 
Laden branches, swelling tree ! 
Leaf meander, come and go, 
Dancing leaf thou tak'st not me. 



Morning beams that round me dart 
Magic sweetness, golden cheer, 
You are far tho' seeming near; 
Wind, thbu warmest not my heart 
Though thou driest every tear. 



FOLLY 



WHO was it near me sighed? 

'Twas pale proud Melancholy ; 
"What pain do we now divide," 

Quoth she, "Is it love or pride ? " 
No, no ; 'tis nought but folly ! 

'Tis nought, 'tis nought but folly ! 



"Folly of what complexion?" 
Fair mischief with fond eyes : 

"And what her imperfection?" 
That away from me she flies. 

" Then to music let us rally, 
That with such thoughts will tally, 
Till all vain longing dies." 



25 



MADRIGAL 



As he sat at the feet of his love, 

And with one hand was toying, 
To her shoulder she lured a white- winged dove, 

For the other hand's employing. 



" May I not call a moment mine ? " 

Quoth he, " Oh dismiss thy minion,"- 
"Fie, fie," she said with brow benign, 
Smoothing her darling's pinion. 



Oh beware ! for the heart rebels 
When love insipid chains it: 

Siveet comes in course, the palate else, 
Voluptuous, disdains it. 



" If for love," he cried, " you are still athirst ; 

Of me, of me grow fonder," 
"Why not content to be the first?" 

She replies while her glances wander. 



Ah I beware! for love is ever wanton, 

If only toying, toying, 
And ivell for you that a ivhite-ivinged dove 

Is at hand for her decoying. 
26 



TO 



ABE you richer for the song I penned you ? 
See now a sheaf I send you. 



Are you poorer for the kiss you gave me? 
Nay then its fellow save me. 



If that child's touch upon my lips requite 
An offering so light, 



What if the deep enchantment of my spirit 
Should bid you fame inherit, 



Kindling my verse as when a cloud on fire 
Draws all eyes to admire, 



What would the gift be then ? Ah ! far above 
My music, were it love. 



27 



AS THE OLIVES BEND DOWN TO SEA 

As the olives bend down to the sea, 
Touching the earth with a silver bough, 

So I bend to thee 

With silent longing and fruitless vow. 
Ah ! down the steep I would gladly rush, 

But am rooted now, 
And like the olives can only push 
A branch thy way, and look below, 
And murmur thy name on the mountain's brow. 



28 



THE BOATMAN 

BOATMAN ! the sail unfurling 

Before the wind we'll float, 
The water round us curling ; 

For the earth I know by rote ; 
And the light lift of the boat 

On the laughing blithesome wave, 

Shall give me all I crave. 

Out Envy ! Mad Possession ! 
What is ours but life's procession ? 
Let me take what nature offers ; 

In my coffers 

Treasure what the world may share ; 
With the ripple's beat and bubble, 
Laugh at what the rich call trouble ; 
Rise, and see the coast-line gleaming, 

Vineyards teeming, 
Fall, and all but miss the curving 
Lines of mountains, swaying, swerving, 

With our motion, to our measure, 

Making fortune serve our pleasure. 
Unmoored, unmoored my heart shall float, 

And the light lift of the boat 

On the laughing, blithesome wave 

Shall give me all I crave. 



29 



THE OLD BRIDGE 

Val Anzasca. 

LIZARD, I spy an alpine rose 

Beside you gaily springing ; 
Wild rose, I see the mountain stream 

His dew upon you flinging ; 
Stream, I espy a rustic bridge 

Spanning your wave demurely ; 
Old bridge, I see a kerchiefed maid 

Who walks your planks securely. 
With youthful life her bosom heaves, 

Her foot is lightly planted, 
Up by the wood she turns, and leaves 

The bridge and stream enchanted. 



30 



A SHORE DOTH LOVE ANOTHER 
SHORE 



A SHORE doth love another shore; 

Then lordly pines are felled, 
And swiftly down to ocean's roar, 

A hollow ship compelled. 



By the sea pink and lavender, 
And past the edges of the foam 

Where the black seaweed is astir ; 
Past rocks that guard the home, 



Out in the offing of the bay, 
Borne on from crest to crest 

Of clamorous waves, that till that day 
Ran aimless and unblest. 



Across the vessel now they sweep, 
Man's joyous life to share, 

The sea-birds dive, the dolphins leap ; 
The storm kings in their lair, 
31 



SONGS AND LYRICS 

Long used to ease a sullen mind 
By churning waves to froth, 

Or shattering rocks, rejoice to find 
One who can feel their wrath. 



By sundering men the gods foresee 
To the deep new life is given, 

And that wan space might peopled be, 
They bide in distant heaven. 



32 



THREE SONGS 
A SEQUENCE 



I YIELD, but am not conquered ; 

Would I were more a slave ! 
You have not in rule such pleasure 

As I in service have. 



You wound me, and I am stricken ; 

Would it were really pain ! 
Would it corroded deeper, 

This ornamental chain ! 



Spare not ! be keen and cruel, 
Sweet tyrant ! chide me yet, 

Be cruel, arid then be tender, 

There is one I would fain forget. 



33 



SONGS AND LYRICS 



ii 



No more kind looks and no more slights, 

Is it a loss or gain? 
Fewer sad thoughts by days and nights, 

Yet fewer joys remain. 



How light this bosom feels, how free ! 

Yet something vacant too ; 
So my new mistress, Liberty, 

Like a lover I must woo. 



34 



THREE SONGS, A SEQUENCE 



in 



To thee my steps are turning 
When Slumber's hand I take, 

I see thee through the summer night, 
Thy voice when I awake 



In my charmed ear re-echoes, 
Tho' silent all the day ; 

No accents e'er revealed a soul 
So gentle and so gay. 



How oft to lute and viol 

I listen for thy strain, 
Through labyrinths of mazy sound 

I follow, but in vain. 



Now, Beatris, I fathom 

Thy poet's true design ; 
Thy lips were closed, and of goodwill 

Had given but little sign. 



Then with a mighty patience, 

Submissive to God's law, 
Through gulfs of pain, with slow approach, 

Tow'rds thee his footsteps draw. 

35 



SONGS AND LYRICS 

Then he unlocked thy bosom 

From its stronghold of restraint, 

Filling thy mouth with words and tones, 
For which his heart was faint. 



And from zone to zone ascending, 

What wonders he espied ! 
When his want of love and constancy 

Thy lips ceased not to chide. 



'Twas to hold thee still discoursing 
He made his scheme so vast, 

And through whole cantos heard thy voice 
The universe recast. 



But of my love no wisdom 

I would ask, nor golden phrase, 

Yea, nothing more celestial 
Than a greeting of old days. 



36 



WIT AND LOVE 

WHERE the winged wit is sitting 
Mute on lips sedate and pure, 

In the shadows love is flitting, 
Carefully obscure. 



Round her lips wit plays and hovers, 
Till their silence they forego, 

Then the parted line discovers 
Love's victorious bow. 



37 



THE LORD OF THE MANOR 

WHAT boots the volume of the world outspread 

Before thine eyes of lead, 
Its changes, and its pageants, and its dooms ? 

All these thy mind entombs 
In its great burial-place, where sink to rest 

The oppressor and the opprest ; 
Where feuds are hushed, and agitations lulled, 

And all proud gains annulled. 
New powers are throned, new truths of various 
glance 

Appear nay, they advance, 
They overrun thee, but thou knows't it not, 

In thy manorial plot 
Deeply embedded, stolid and secure, 
Like a great boulder on a tawny moor. 



38 



II 



FOUR MINSTRELS 



I CAN be sorrowful, thoughtful, or scornful, 

I c.an be lively and sharp, 
Carelessly joyous, or dreamily mournful, 

For so many strings has my harp. 
Piercingly ring they, loftily, daringly, 

Under the Muses' control ; 
One little cadence I whisper them sparingly, 

That from my secret soul. 



II 

What are you busy with, good youth? 
A marriage song for Love and Truth. 

What gave that random fancy birth ? 
A glimpse of the new heaven and earth. 

That we call mystical, my friend ; 
Doubtless, but o'er that task I bend. 

What keeps you constant to your aim ? 
Beauty unseized, and distant fame. 
41 



SONGS AND LYRICS 

in 

" In the world's garden who can cull 

No herb of healing power, 
Must with eternal music lull 

The anguish of the hour." 

O poet, in thy far-ranging flight, 

With many a mournful cry, 
Thou bringest the wealth of the world to 
light, 

And on thy wings we fly. 

How wondrous is the soul ! how warm 

Yet lofty its desire ! 
Miraculous is Nature's charm ! 

Strike, poet, strike thy lyre. 

The world shall call thy losses gains, 

Then all thyself impart ; 
Existence shows its ruddy veins, 

From the wound within thy heart. 



IV 

"The trees are all nodding and bending 

To the measure I set from below, 
To hear me the brook is descending, 

The lithe swallows dart to and fro. 
The leaves of the sycamore tremble 

To the roll of my epic, I ween, 
Yea, the clouds in the zenith assemble," 

Sings the wren on the stalk of a bean. 
42 



FOUR MINSTRELS 

"The doves circle round me to listen, 

The plum-tree empurples his fruit, 
The stars of the clematis glisten, 

And higher the bulrushes shoot ; 
The lover my rondel is humming, 

He will whisper his lady unseen, 
That at last the new poet is coming," 

Sings the wren on the stalk of a bean. 



43 



A SOUTHERN GIRL 

THE chant has ceased, and through its echoes 

she hears 

The plaintive prayer to Mary Mother intoned, 
With soft " Amen " that falters from arch to arch. 
Then from her cushion rising with eyes bedimmed 
She follows in its motion a wandering beam, 
That hither, thither, topaz and violet, flits 
About the column, now on the altar, now 
Above the kneeling priest it is seen to rest. 
"A token from above on the saintly man," 
She thinks with awe, as along the aisle she moves, 
Beneath the window saints in their aureoles, 
Demure, and passing out to the golden air 
Breathes free, and takes with a smile an offered 

flower. 

Ere she knows how it chances, or what befalls, 
Her heart, late tuned to a penitential psalm, 
Thrills with the swaying crowd in the Fountain 

Square, 

Where two are locked together with dagger gleam ; 
And flooding every movement with light, her eyes, 
But now in wistful gaze on the two large tears 
Ready to fall of the Mother of Pain in the niche, 
Hold in their glowing mirror the shifting scene 

44 



A SOUTHERN GIRL 

Exalted, as though 'twere played to a jewelled 

court ; 

Her red lips bite the stalk of a rose, that else, 
But for this show, had laughed with pride in her 

hair. 

Breathless she watches flash and parry and clench, 
And notes the crimson spot on the fountain-stone ; 
At last she takes the rose from her lips and cries, 
" Gesii, thorough the shoulder, a pretty stroke ! " 



4i 



LINES FOR MUSIC 

A PERFUME out of the past, 
From the flowers your fingers were braiding 
And carelessly cast 
By the way, 
Is pervading 
The bloom of the day, 

And at last, 
Turns the song of the white-handed May 

To complaint, 

The splendour of Nature is fading 
Before it though faint. 



46 



TO 



ONE day in seven I see you, 
Though oft your face I seek. 

My life is like a flower 
That opens once a week. 



n 

Then on the light it gathers 
In one day's bliss and bloom, 

It feeds while it is folded 
For six days in the tomb. 



in 

And when the term is ended, 
Each leaf in haste it moves, 

Till in the glowing daylight 
It looks on what it loves. 



47 



NIGHT 

ON the mountain crescent glistens 
The cloud from its wanderings free : 

The breathless pinewood listens 

To the voice at the edge of the sea. 



The sea pauseth and waiteth 
For a whisper from the land ; 

The pride of life abateth ; 

Cliff-shadows kneel on the sand. 



Rocks, mountains softly moulded, 
I am come your breath to draw, 

With you to be enfolded, 
In child-like peace and awe. 



By man deserted, sharing 
No more his friendly sky, 

Thro' the void ether bearing 
Intent the eternal eye. 



48 



THE WINDOW 

'Tis so, when one from a window looks without 

purpose or plan, 
He sees what is new in the old, and marvels at 

Nature and Man. 

This m orn I look at the land-locked bay, and the 

passing crowd, 
And see the moss on the wall, and the upland 

meeting the cloud. 

The captive trees, with averted boughs on the 

Esplanade 
In the dance of their shadows are gay as those by 

a forest glade. 

On the coast-guard's cliff, with children at play, 

sheep nibble and roam ; 
Below, sea-swallows circle about the edge of the 

foam. 

Farther aslant on the fall of the tide the brigan- 

tine leans ; 
Near it, with crossing lines oblique, the coaster 

careens. 

49 D 



SONGS AND LYRICS 

The Indian looks at the ash with eyes that re- 
member the palm, 

And from motion to motion of lassitude falls like 
a sail in a calm. 

I see the young mother with babe in arm, and 

Madonna face, 
From the profaiier crowd aloof in her dainty 

grace. 

Limps a poor woman along, and curtsies to 

mother and child, 
The babe leans forward amazed, but the mother 

is unbeguiled. 

Boy-babe, do you start at the poor, not knowing 

that all these years 
We eye them as part of the show, nor wonder 

at tatters and tears? 

A Christ-like child you look as from mother's 
bosom you stretch 

Wide-open palms but empty, alas ! to the care- 
worn wretch. 

Upward now in the anguish of pity your arms 

you toss, 
All, all, yourself you would give, but that way 

leads to the Cross. 



50 



DOUBT 

STUNG by an April shower I stood 

Under an archway dim ; 
Stole in upon the motley crowd 

A woman young and slim. 

We that were in the shadow felt 

Her entrance to the place, 
For as water breaks to light so broke 

Each movement into grace. 

She comes in her beauty's eminence, 
And on either side they yield, 

For in the folds of her faded gown 
Distinction is revealed. 

" Our earth will ne'er be given to fire 

Before her sister spheres, 
When such an one she can bring to light 

But in a thousand years." 

This, this is she I have waited for 
From the beginning, and still 

From idols I have kept myself 
To be worthy her goodwill.

SONGS AND LYRICS 

Nearer I move, and on her brow 

Saw candour infantine ; 
Her lips were moulded for the truth, 

But love had touched the line. 

She turned a bracelet in her hand 

Set with medallions three ; 
They were Joan, Mary, and Antoinette, 

High names in chivalrie. 

Her eyes were hid, like jewels they 

Were on her trinket set, 
The face most studied of the three 

I saw was Antoinette. 

It may have been her mother's ? . . . Yes, 

But why is she alone ? . . . 
I muse. Look on her face again, 

I look, but she is gone.

THE AKT STUDENT 

I CHANCED to meet you once, do you remember 
Under the archway, by the Pazzi Palace, 
And in your hand you held a figured goblet ; 
I took it from you unresisted, seeking 
To hold you there, and laboured out the inscrip- 
tion, 
And viewed it round and round, and asked you 

whither, 

To whom, and to what banquet you conveyed it. 
And after question hurried on to question, 
Prompting myself with words to speak at ran- 
dom, 

Dreading a gap of silence, wildly fluent, 
Making such ventures that we laughed together, 
My wits being all in giddy holiday ; 
Until at last I found myself repeating 
Old questions, like a priest at confirmation. 
At this you held your hand to take the goblet, 
And then a moment from pure grace and favour, 
Delayed, then turned, and then again delaying 
Gave me a second greeting from compassion. 
And I to my employment went light-hearted, 
And there I showed such tokens of our meeting, 
Such kindness and such joyful wit and patience, 
That all my fellow craftsmen wondered, looking 
Surprise at one another, thus translated, 
" Is this the comrade wont to be so hasty ? "

FAR FROM ME, FAR FROM ME 

FAR from me, far from me, 

Flit Peace and Leisure, 
In what isle of the Southern Sea 

Take they their pleasure? 

From the ambient earth, from depth and 
height, 

Contentment stealing, 
Bubbling billows, bird in flight, 

For thought and feeling. 

Tumult, envy, toil and teen 

Are there forgiven, 
Turned to spots of crimson sheen 

In the mind's heaven. 

Feuds, disasters, endless tears 

Of love ill-fated, 
Become ere they can reach their ears 

To song related. 

Oh to change clamorous arguments 

And proud opinions, 
For the still-flowing smooth events 

Of their dominions : 
54 



FAR FROM ME, FAR FROM ME 

Where old Ocean to the land 

His flock convening, 
Finds a wild swan on the sand 

His feathers preening : 

Where on a morning after storm 
The mind may treasure, 

In its own lasting language-form, 
Nature's brief pleasure.

THREE SONNETS 
A SEQUENCE 



WHERE do your beaming wonder and desire 

Enrich the world that else is but a shade, 
Lighting its dulness with ethereal fire, 

While we upon your absence fret and fade ? 
Who takes your hand? Who intercepts your 
glance ? 

What novel pattern, what luxurious dye 
In the rich arabesque of circumstance 

Is banquet to your proud and covetous eye? 
But why should I malign thee with that word, 

And why pursue thee with so blind an aim? 
All my wild guesses miss thee, my sweet bird, 

Nor pierce this intervening social frame 
That parts us like a close- en tangled wood, 
Where birds may sing but cannot be pursued.

THKEE SONNETS 



ii 

Why art thou still the same? Why dost them 
keep 

A constant form and feature all unchanged, 
When thou hast left thy better self to weep 

Its image tarnished, and its faith estranged? 
Why be so one, so precious, and so rare, 

So little like but one in outward seeming, 
That as we look thou art beyond compare, 

And from this error there is no redeeming. 
Thy soul is truant, faithless, wild and rude, 

A wanderer in the labyrinth of chance, 
Formless and variable as a flood, 

That where it slippeth gaily it doth dance : 
Yet though I heap the sum of thy offence, 
'Tis all forgot in beauty's innocence. 



57 



SONGS AND LYRICS 



in 

My heart denies thee access and resort, 

And I have set my officers of state 
To chase thee from the precincts of my court ; 

Thou art proclaimed and outlawed, and thy 

date 
No more remembered in my busy mind, 

Nor in my highways hast thou leave to walk, 
Nor in my garden mayst a refuge find, 

Though every flower should beckon from his 

stalk. 
But as an insurrection long subdued 

Its songs and badges in the hamlet leaves, 
Shows beacons in the mountain solitude, 

And whispers in the hedges on dark eves, 
So some solicitude beyond my will 
Remembers thee and wears thy favour still.

REVERIE 

Orta. 

THE falling white cloud is breaking its edge 

On the stalwart mountain's brow, 
Falling and creeping from ledge to ledge, 

As the light winds allow, 
Till the ripple against the garden wall 
Counts it vanished beyond recall. 

A petal of red oleander rocks 

On the airy colourless wave, 
And with defiant beauty mocks 

Our meditation grave ; 
Till the ripple against the garden wall 
Counts it vanished beyond recall. 

The winged hour but a moulten feather 
In the hands that grasp it leaves ; 

Lovers make much of time when you come 

together, 
For thinking after grieves, 

When the ripple against the garden wall 

Counts it vanished beyond recall.

RETURN TO ITALY 



DID I look for more than olive, cypress and vine, 
And the red flower blooming on the castle-wall, 

While the sails are dropping down 

To the Zephyr's pretty frown, 
By salients of the wind-swept Appenine ? 

II 

Part with part from peak to cape 
One controlling hand doth shape; 
Shore and bay curved like a shell, 
Islet, inlet, who can tell 
What is wanting to the spell? 
For like the cadence of a mighty song, 
Curves the proud mountain to the tideless sea, 

Across whose undulation free 
The white road dips and rises airily, 
Coasting along 
By cliff and ravine 
Till poised upon a rock 'tis seen ; 
Then disappears with sudden turn 
Where the cactus-blossoms burn. 
No more I haste with greedy glance 

For what beyond may chance, 
Of new illusion or of old romance; 
What is beyond let the seagull learn; 
'Tis the same beauty still in flight, 
And the same love but less delight. 
60 



RETURN TO ITALY 

in 

I need another by, that I may know 
It is not passing as an idle show, 
That I am here indeed, not a thin shade, 
A memory of myself has hither strayed 
Sees the young matron pass with child on arm, 
Who smiles and wantons with her necklace- 
charm ; 

Sees the red-kerchiefed girl upon the stair 
Pausing, and looking round with eyes as fair 
As Viola's, whose phantom she might be. 
Is all I dreamt become reality 
And I myself in turn the dream? O Muse, 
Who canst at will the light and darkness use, 
What thought, what art, what music shall essay 
To put the world within my grasp to-day, 
Strike it to life and with a touch divine 
Show it to others that it may be mine. 



61 



AS LONG AS THE BREATH 

As long as the breath sweeps over my lip 

You will be dear to me, 

O sweet let slip 
That dainty network of caprice 

In which you glance about, 
And your true feature let us see, 

Beyond compare 
With any counterfeit more fair. 
Think you our true love to enhance 
With tempest after heavenly peace, 
And dazzling favour after doubt? 
That is an elfin-child's romance. 



CHANGES 

Lake of Como. 

THE last cloud from the zenith 

The winds in silence bear ; 
But one white peak remaineth 

In the unillumined air. 

To every change sweet Nature 

Conciliates wave and hill, 
Remoulding every feature 

With delight in her own skill. 

She fears no frowns nor glances 

Of alienation cold, 
Though hooded Eve advances, 

And the Sun's tale is told. 

She recks not of his embers, 

Her fire is soon renewed ; 
While with passion the heart remembers, 

In peace doth Nature brood. 

See ! Twilight's intermission 

Fulfilled, he seeks his tent, 
And Night like a great musician 

Sits down to the instrument. 
63 



SONGS AND LYRICS 

By an Alp the car of Dian 
Rests, while she looks below 

Thro' the shaggy woods ; Orion 
Shrinks from her silver bow. 



On the lake's mirror paling 
Hesper a glance bestows, 

And like a bride unveiling 
Capella softly glows. 

A leaf of the plantain quivers, 
And an olive grey with care 

In his wrinkled branches shivers, 
To see the world so fair. 



ANDROMEDA 

SET in the stars are all our wrongs, 
Who can vex Andromeda now? . . . 
Her eyes are glass, her wounded brow 

Stains the dull rock, for death she longs. 

She looks : the creature tow'rds her turns 

Crunching the shells . . . Who frees her hands 
So gently ? Who before her stands ? 

Perseus ; and back to life she burns. 

Those death-filled hours upon the rock 
No term of mortal life repays, 
So she is throned whence she may gaze 

Secure o'er earthly change and shock. 

To greater pain the Gods avow 

The richer remedy belongs ; 

Who can vex Andromeda now? 
Set in the stars are all our wrongs.

THE HUT 

Val Anzasca. 

THE vines are trellised over the roof, 
Wild rose on the rafters thin, 

On the porch oleander winds his woof, 
And squalor sits within. 

Truly a pauper's hut will match 

So mean a life as ours, 
Yet ever the broken roof we thatch, 

Art, with thy gadding flowers. 

Some say the likeness of a bower 

The sordid shed retains ; 
And some, tho' vine and rose may flower, 

A hovel it remains. 



66 



MIDSUMMER 

O childish-gay Midsummer hours ! 
Though born in our domain, 
No fellowship with us you feign. 
When we say, " Ah well-a-day ! 
What a tangled life is ours, 

We can but feel it, 
Pure delight is not allowed 
And for peace, the world will steal it,' 
With the sun and moon you play, 
Cross the sky and build the cloud ; 

Then descending, 
With light feet, the ears of corn 

At your will are bending ; 
Or you dance a merry round 
With the meadow-flowers new-born, 

White and pied, 
All with a chain of silver sound 

Accompanied, 
Which we hear when most forlorn. 



67 



SUMMER LIGHTNING 

IN the gloaming, lately roaming, 
By the streamlet chafing, foaming, 
Flashed the lightning, ever bright'ning, 
Then my love clung fast to me. 



" Why so fearful, faint and tearful ? 
This is summer fire and cheerful, 
Meteor splendour, harmless, tender, 
Turn and watch it, sweet, with me." 



Then her loving arm removing, 
" Sir, 'tis you," she cried reproving, 
"Too enlightened, that are frightened 
At a harmless flash from me." 



68 



O WHERE SHALL LOVE BE FOUND? 

O where shall Love be found? 
In places dark and deep, 
Where the wingless hours creep 
Among forgotten dreams ; 
Ambushed, where no light streams ; 
With waifs and castaways, 
Discarded, out of grace, 
Hid where no watch is set, 
And feigning to be bound 
In slumber's filmy net ; 
While above it life is wrought 
To patterns of new thought 
There shall true Love be found ! 
Beneath farewells and fretting, 
Long silence and forgetting, 
Cold pride and cruel passion, 
In his unconscious fashion, 
Still hopeful, still alert, 
As if he took no hurt 
From all this spite unmeasured, 
Well knowing he is treasured 
In the fastness of the soul, 
Beyond the will's control : 
And should occasion call, 
With but a word or glance, 
He who was held in thrall 
In quick deliverance 
Appeareth in his place, 
Master by right and grace.

HAVEN NOR HOME 

HAVEN nor home has the cloud, but yielding its life 

as it passes 

It leaves the flower refreshed ; 
Th' incoherent wind's mad buffetings swiftly to 

harbour 

Impel the wished-for barque : 
Often a witless dream wide-wandering threads at 

a venture 

The golden gate of Truth : 
Often a furious sea on the shore that it rends with 

its breakers 

Upturns a rose-lipped shell : 
So this meaningless world from its manifold web 

of illusion 
Unfolds to me your love.

THE GUARDIAN ANGEL 

WHEN you hear a whisper 

"Walk in fear," 
Your Guardian Angel 

To God draws near; 

New strength to gather, 

New peace to win, 
A moment to rest 

The fold within. 

He joins in the prayers 

At the Mercy-Seat, 
Which the seraph-children 

Smiling repeat. 

He looks on the beauty 

Of Paradise, 
Till the earth-shadow 

Fades from his eyes. 

Flows the old rapture 

Of fellowship 
Into his bosom, 

Over his lip. 

74 



THE GUARDIAN ANGEL 

Then forth he issues 

In armour of light, 
Woven of beams 

Invisibly bright. 

When you hear a whisper 

" Have no fear," 
-Your Guardian Angel 

From God draws near. 



75 



SUNLIGHT 

SUN, shining full upon my breast, 
As I stand the church without, 
After an argument well exprest 

Inclining faith to doubt, 

Thou seizest me as one that would prevail ; 
Shine on the ocean, glisten on the sail. 



" Where is my poem ? Where the strain 

Long promised, long my due, 
Whose generous life-abounding vein 

Should the dull world renew ? " 
These words seem with the wind to rise and fall 
That shakes the red valerian on the wall. 



O sovereign beam, thou dost not own 

The loveless hours in which we fade, 
Man's sorrows reach a depth unknown 
To thy sweet comfort ; in the shade 
Will truth be won that must the soul avail : 
Shine on the ocean, glisten on the sail. 
76 



SUNLIGHT 

" Thou too, dost thou within the mist 

Of vaporous thought," the voice returns, 
"Search for the truth and life resist, 

God's splendour that within thee burns ? 
Truth is all fervour, joy, and golden beam, 
Rapture of living, other truth is dream." 



77 



VITA NUOVA 

Now is the flower of morning open blown, 
And we come forth as to a world unknown, 
Created but this hour, all innocence, 
The spirit still brooding o'er the realm of sense, 

And all the future given, 

In the expanding heaven ; 
Life in eternal fulness there revealed, 
Which time in fragments joy by joy must yield : 

All present, all to come, 
Contentment ever adding to its sum. 

So young the sky, so pure the air, 

As if indeed 

On the first promise we did feed 
With the unfallen pair, 

Secure of immortality 

Awaiting love ; in that still hour 
When Adam : " What new Wonder of the light, 
What Presence, what Dominion comes with power 
My peaceful mind with beauty to affright?" 

And a voice moves from tree to tree 
"Fond soul, 'tis only I who come to thee."

TASSO TO LEONORA 



LEONORA ! by thy side 
Where the world may be defied, 
Joy and daring seize my soul, 
And beneath thine eyes' control, 

1 begin to understand 

How the starry heavens were planned. 

These are the prodigalities 

Of love you see upon the skies, 

In a moment's rapture tost, 

In their own profusion lost, 

Lavished with a sweeping hand 

Which no power can countermand. 

'Tis his glory and his right : 

All creation comes to light 

By this impulse to a gift, 

The same that doth the heart uplift. 

Heaven is not far 
Nor the domain of Jove 
From the dilated freedom of my love. 

Oh I could throw 
The garland on thy brow 

To Ariadne's star. 

II 

You should have lived in the olden time 

When life was offered up, 
And the treasure of the heart with praise 

Poured in a golden cup, 
79 



SONGS AND LYRICS 

With quaint designs of heroes wrought, 
That soon was filled with wine, 

And to each bearded warrior brought 
Deftly by hands like thine. 

For afterwards they held a feast, 

Were merry and profane. 
That such good customs long have ceased 

You justly might complain. 



Ill 

My words are harsh and bitter ; 

They will not long be so, 
A little more, and love ashamed 

Will lose his earnest glow. 

'Tis flood-time, and within me 
Swells the old love, but soon 

E'en now I feel 'tis ebbing fast 
Beneath the changeful moon. 

I am sanguine and eager-hearted, 

I could pray prayers insane, 
On starry Leo I could call 

To shake loose his tawny mane 

In fire upon this city 

Where such devilry is planned : 
But may the breath that pleads with thee 

Be the last at my command.

ACHILLES AND PENTHESILEA 

"THIS from the hand of a girl to Achilles superb!" 

As the words fly, 

Rings on the buckler the dart, rings and re- 
bounds to the earth, 
Ere she is ware of his coming his sword plays 

around her, she falters, 
Wounded, unhelmeted, falls. Pierced with her 

beauty he moans, 
"Wretch that I am, and doomed 'to disaster! O 

Penthesilea 
Live ! " But with each hard breath ebbing, 

her life wells forth. 

Heart-struck he as a woman laments still kneel- 
ing beside her ; 

Unmoved she as a man, full on her conqueror 
stares.

GENIUS LOCI 

THE lifting and the light fall of the skiff, 
The hending of the grasses leisurely, 
Near the old pathway of the crumbling cliff 
To the same breeze that used to wave your hair, 
More with the genius of the scene agree 
And the old charm towards which I vainly reach, 
Than splintered rocks, and boulders on the beach, 
Now dwindled, that we deemed beyond compare. 
The spell was wholly in the place I thought, 
Which now returns, by these few touches wrought, 
With the old power; as one half absently 
Over a viol runs a careless bow 
Grazing the strings, and yet the tune we know. 
There is the moss upon the broken stair 
Deep-angled in the wall where we would sit, 
Nor spake a word of love, but joined the talk 
Of pattering leaf and whispering wave, as they 
Would join in ours and to our silence play ; 
Forth of a sudden would the martin flit 
And leave the ivy twirling on the stalk. 
The charm is here ; the softness of the air, 
The ruddy tinge upon the milky sea, 
The stillness of the cloud, are parts of it; 
But the warm sunlight chills me to the bone 
As I sit here, as I look forth, alone.

WHY HAST THOU CHANGED AND 

DAEKENED 

Lago di Varese. 

WHY hast thou changed and darkened 

When all was late so clear, 
And the words to which I hearkened 

Made the light of day more dear? 

Thou gavest me charm and token, 
And a promise in which to rest; 

But in the wave 'tis broken, 
And by the wind possessed. 

Oh why didst thou change and darken? 

Unlooked for power was thine, 
The olive bent low to hearken, 

And the wild rose bent from the vine :- 



When the words were so shyly spoken 

That set all doubt at rest; 
And the promise so lightly broken 

Was so earnestly expressed. 



83 



SONNET 

Now thou art left to look upon the time ; 

Wishing thou had'st not given thy heart such 

scope ; 
And spelling backward love's bewildering rhyme, 

Wilt pause on each light word that gave thee 

hope ; 
And many an old occasion wilt review, 

Sifting it to its elements again, 
Whence some faint meaning may be pressed anew 

To thy advantage, but thou toil'st in vain. 
As one that moves about a field of death 

And holds his lantern close to every face, 
Questions the silent heart, and for a breath 

Listens intently, loth to quit the place. 
So wilt thou waste the night in search forlorn, 

Till beggared time brings back an empty morn. 



84 



WITHIN AND WITHOUT 

THE boughs clash, and the leaves like sparks fly 
round. 

Was that last look a question or a doubt? 
Shudders the wood, the thunder jars the ground. 

Peaceful thy image dwells amid the rout. 

And now 'tis light. How pure the air, how sweet ! 

Thou walkest with me in the bending grass, 
And that quick look which is my life I meet 

In every pool that eyes me as I pass.

CONFESSION 

FLOWERS unfading night is braiding 

O'er the graves of men ; 
All-beholding heaven is folding 

Valley, grove and glen. 



What is spoken mid the unbroken 
Peace ? What sin conf est ? 

Hush thy weeping, child, 'tis keeping 
Angels from their rest.

THE MILL 

GRIND, O Man, 
In thy invisible mill, 

Unceasingly grind 
To powder the manifold world. 

Art thou not fashioned 

Of old for this labour, 

With infinite skill, 

Thus to manipulate 

Matter for mind ? 
Behind thee all fear 
And humility cast: 
Pause not, repent not, 
Spare not for worth, 
And for beauty relent not, 

Iconoclast. 



But why this ridiculous 
Writhing and twisting, 
Through failure persisting 
In futile endeavour 
To cast yourself in with the rest 
And be ground, yet with zest 
87 



SONGS AND LYRICS 

Unabated be still 
Complacent as ever 
There unremittingly,

Grinding the mill?

MAN 

O FRIVOLOUS querulous 
Voice in the void, 
Unreal petulant Man, 
Whose inanimate soul 
Immortality woos ; 
Mobile bubble of air, 
Motionless clod of the earth ; 
Eager for fellowship, yet 
Self -idolatrous, vain ; 
Unloving, greedy of love ; 
Earnestly praying for light, 
Yet with a spirit obtuse 
Intercepting the gift ; 
Sad in thy impotence, more 
Saddening still in thy mirth ; 
Boastful creator, thyself 
Unformed, coming to life ; 
Nearer and nearer to thee 
Must the Immortals live, 
Yea, at thy hearthstone sit, 
Ere thou art rightfully Man.

URANIA 

I ASK not you, the wise, and strong, and fair, 
To leave for me the wealth you have amassed, 
Knowledge, or fame, or happiness, low-cast ; 

Too settled in your order for my care ; 

But with the poor unprospered folk I share 
The bliss of my contentment, in whose eyes 
My service is no labour, sacrifice 

They know but as a gift beyond compare. 

These will attain to follow where I move : 
Willing to lose the world and be complete : 
Able to turn and listen and yield the mind 

Obsequious to my impulse, as a dove 
Balancing to the motion of the wind, 
On even plumes, in correspondence sweet. 



90 



LIGHT 

THE ceaseless action of the light fire-spun 
Meets the desire to see, and Truth is won ; 
'Tis to the limit of our vision told, 
And more and more as we can more behold ; 
For this the powers that in creation lurk 
From the extremes of heaven together work. 



91 



THE ARTIST 

PRIVATION, like an artist keen, 
Looks far for beauty arid repose, 

And shapes with humbleness of mien 

More lovely forms than Pleasure knows ; 

Imparting to each high design 

Some new humanity divine. 

There with clear-thoughted Justice walks 
Forbearance with a wounded brow ; 

There to his bosom-friend Love talks 
Uranian truth, as forth they go 

Distributing life's bread and wine, 

The new humanity divine.

ADORATION OF THE SHEPHERDS 



HAIL, Thou new Almighty Power 

Given us from above ! 
Born of woman, earthly flower, 

Breathing peace and love ; 
With our cares to be offended, 

Neath our clouds to rest, 
Where the poor are unbefriended 

And the weak opprest. 
We, Thy shepherds, bend before Thee, 
Ere Thou reignest we adore Thee, 
Christ the Lord ! 



II 

On Thy lips a smile is telling 

Childhood's holy trust, 
As if still Thou had'st Thy dwelling 

With the pure and just. 
Ah ! Thy tender intercession, 

Lamb of God, we need : 
At Thy feet we make confession 

And Thy Name we plead. 
Christ, the new Almighty Power, 
Born of woman, earthly flower, 
Christ the Lord! 
93 



SONGS AND LYRICS 

in 

Through our veins new life is flowing, 

As we gaze on Thee, 
Knowing all things, but unknowing 

Sin's sad mystery. 
With Thine eyes Thou dost the Evangel 

Of good will repeat, 
Every look is like an angel 

From the Mercy-Seat. 
We Thy shepherds kneel before Thee, 
In Thy weakness we adore Thee, 
Christ the Lord! 



EASTER SONG 

PROMISE linking age to age, 
King to prophet, priest to sage, 
Till one morn the truth is told, 
From the tomb the stone is rolled, 
Christ is risen ! 



Tree of life with golden fruit, 
Whereof all the past is root ! 
Every soul from hour to hour 
Sits within thy blissful bower, 
Christ is risen ! 



This assurance every child, 
From deep heaven benign and mild, 
With each hasty fluttering breath, 
Draws into the house of death : 
Christ is risen ! 



When with this the mind is filled, 
Care is soothed and trouble stilled ; 
Every morning from the East 
Calls all nations to this feast, 
Christ is risen !

CUPID AND MELPOMENE 



LIKE the snow from Ida drifting, 
Cupid came, an arrow lifting, 
Roved abroad and flew and scampered, 
Airing thus his humour pampered. 

Skimmed the vales, the upland breasted, 
Stoutly with the wind contested, 
Then before it smoothly scudded, 
Down to cities temple-studded. 

Saw the waves in giddy motion, 
Then for passage through the ocean 
Called the steed that bore Orion, 
With a Triton, and sea-lion 

For companions, made a pillow 
Of a gently curving billow ; 
Reached the rim of the ^Egean : 
Landed, slept, woke, sang a paean.

" There it looms the sacred mountain ! 
With its song-exciting fountain ! 
Through the forest I will travel, 
Where my wits I can unravel." 
99 



SONGS AND LYRICS 

On with brow sedate he marches, 
Under curling boughs or larches, 
"Here to rest a moment hidden 
By this beech is not forbidden." 

Woodlarks, tits and finches flocking, 
Find the bough where he is rocking, 
Sylvan creatures round him gather, 
Ruddy fur, and motley feather. 

Doves upon his hand alighting, 
Mavis, magpie, fluttering, fighting, 
On his quiver perch, or bolder, 
Hustling balance on his shoulder. 

As he looks each glance discloses 
Arcades, grottoes, rills and roses ; 
Nymphs and Oreads, roused from sleeping, 
From behind the boles are peeping. 

" Who would not with birds together 
In the forest trim a feather?" 
Cupid cried, " How cool and pleasant ! 
But like love, 'tis evanescent." 



in 

Darkling grew the wood embowered, 
Silver light the fountain showered, 
Sat a maiden by the waters, 
'Twas the pearl of Memory's daughters. 

Quick he drew a reedy arrow, 
Aiming with an eyelid narrow. 
With a long-drawn note she charmed him, 
Then on sudden she disarmed him.

Back to life the dead am bringing."

Heed not, Muse, my sparks and sallies, 
Sing to mountains, woods and valleys, 
Let your song float into heaven 
And wake up the Pleiads seven." 

Then she broke in gracious story, 
Hymning Fate and Kronos hoary. 
Shook the leaves, the water glistened, 
Cupid rolled his eyes and listened. 



IV 

Deepening now with mellow organ 
She intoned of Demogorgon, 
And the Sisters serpent-crested, 
With the threads of life invested. 

And of Chaos and his era, 
Battling Titan, wild chimsera, 
Phorkyads, and the moon-eyed Sphinxes, 
Harpies too, and other minxes. 

Many a name of might she uttered, 
Cupid pursed his lips and muttered, 
But when Nemesis was sounded 
Cupid to her bosom bounded. 

" Dearest Muse, why this incessant 
Talk of Hades? Life is pleasant, 
All before us, love and laughter, 
Leave to Pluto what comes after. 
101 



SONGS AND LYRICS 

But my lips I know are truant, 
Yours are grave as they are fluent, 
If a kiss they would but favour, 
More of wisdom mine might savour." 

But or ere the words were spoken 
She had given the faithful token, 
Which the faithless boy receiving 
Gave her back, his spirit leaving. 



Still she sang but in such fashion, 
Terror melted to compassion, 
Many a word with tears was broken, 
Some in sighs remained unspoken. 

As she sang the fountain glistened, 
Cupid rolled his eyes and listened ; 
" Why, the very ghosts," he stammered, 
" With your tales would be enamoured. 

On your lips so grave and pious, 
That with virtue's praise would try us, 
How engaging is love's sadness, 
And your treatment of its madness, 

How heartrending and delightful ! 
And your jealousy how spiteful ! 
By my mother's tresses twisted, 
In your camp I am enlisted. 

Here I vow and make confession, 
You alone give love expression, 
What are songs with all their magic 
To your scenes and outcries tragic? 
Dearest Muse Melpomene." 
102 



VIGIL 

WHEN thou art driven forth in the night, 

While the happy slumber on, 
Thy trouble will teach thee to read aright 

What they would vainly con. 

To the open heaven dost thou uplift 

Haggard, inquiring eyes? 
Thou wilt be lost in time, and drift 

Under Chaldsean skies, 

Naming the stars, for thou wert there, 

So far the beam is cast 
Of thy faint consciousness, aware 

Of an unsounded past. 

Thyself it was through bliss and bane, 

With the same mind intent 
On the sequences and golden chain 

Of the heavenly argument ; 

Tenaciously with fixed gaze 
While aeons round thee melt 
103 



SONGS AND LYRICS 

Widening the rings of time and space 
Wherein thy spirit dwelt. 



Look downward if thou wilt, but soon 
Within thine ears will stay 

What the earth mutters to the moon 
Comparing night with day ; 

Action with thought ; upon this clod 
To make our footing sure? 

Or in the infinity of God 
Passive to rest and pure? 

Or dost thou to the muffled wood 

Carry thy little world? 
A song will come to ease thy mood 

Under the branches curled. 



And when the undistinguished trees 

Come forward one by one, 
Out of the night, as each foresees 

The advent of the sun, 

Thou wilt learn how dear thy presence is 

To the brood of mother earth, 
One who can share their morning bliss, 

And praise their beauty's worth 

A spirit, with fluttering thoughts for leaves. 

Who knows the mystery 
Of the fellowship which each receives 

And gives in his degree? 
104 



VIGIL 

The wild rose in the wood withdrawn 
Claims thee for witness true, 

How on her petals looks the dawn 
When she would day renew. 

"See, see, how craftily she lays 

Her tints to rival mine, 
At the meeting-place, the crowning grace, 
Where red and white combine." 



105 



CARRARA 



STONE-PINES are casting 

Faint shadows, pale olives 
Flock downward to meet our ascent, 

But are found, when around us 
Their branches are closing, 

On solitude bent, 
Shy, nun-like, aloof, 

Our laughter opposing 
With silence and modest reproof. 



Then out to the heather, 

Pinaster, arbutus, and bay, 

By the hut with its cypress 

Awaiting the day ; 

Hills rising together, 

Enlarging the scene, 

Till the spears of the larches 

Intervene : 

While our old domain, 
Half-felt, half-discerned 
Coast-line and crescent, 
And woods which Autumn 
Has touched, not burned, 
106 



CARRARA 

We still retain, 

Ideally present 

As part of the scene ; 

Drawing breath as we climb 

Of sweet basil and thyme. 



What comes to me, 
Arid holds me tranced and still, 
As I climb the yellowing hill ? 
Is it a sense 
Of community intense, 
With the great heart-beat 
Of the earth beneath my feet, 
With the expectant air, 
And the faintly-glimmering sea? 
Or is it some wider 
Communion that fills 
My vacant soul, 
As I stand withdrawn 
In the utter stillness of dawn? . 
/ hear you, I come ! 
How shall I hold it, how retain 
This ineffable strain 
That to music belongs, 
And holds in its bosom 
A thousand songs? 



/ come, I come 

Up through the pine woods' 

Precipitous stair, 

Whose branches are closing 

All vistas fair, 

107 



SONGS AND LYRICS 

We stumble ; these watch us 
And move as we move, 
Like a disciplined band 
Changing formation 
By word of command. 



With a glance and a gleam 
And outcries wild 
Like a petulant child 
Comes a thread of a stream, 
Darting vociferous 
Through the indifferent 
Silent pines. 



Now we move among fragments 

Of splintered rock, 

Disjointed and sundered 

By tempest-shock. 

Then wedged in a serpentine 

Narrowing cleft, 

Overshadowed and groping 

From right to left, 

Of a sudden before us 

The cliffs break away ; 

And behold the white mountain 

Ablaze with the day ! 



A long dumb stare! 
At last sensation 
Recovers its breath: 
" How great ! " one saith. 
Then down we fare. 
108 



CARRARA 

What now of the strain 

That held you tranced and still 

On the slope of the yellowing hill? 

And within you burned 

Like the sense of love returned? 

Has it vanished? Nay, nay, 

In its loss it will stay ; 

To the Muse it belongs, 

And holds in its bosom 

A thousand songs. 



109 



BY NIGHT 

BY night the thorn is budding 

Tho' in the moon's cold rays, 
By night the tide is flooding 

Black reefs, and twinkling bays ; 
A ship in the silent harbour 

Glideth, and sails are furled, 
While thou in balmy darkness 

Art innocent of the world. 

There's a gleam amid the grasses 

Of a rivulet fugitive, 
And a touch on the cloud that passes 

The wit of the day to give; 
In the poplar's branch is tangled 

The Serpent's shining fold, 
But thou art all forgetting, 

And to our dreams art cold. 

Ivy-shadows are fretting 

Thy window fitfully, 
Stars are rising and setting, 

Without a glance from thee. 
I have come by copse and meadow 

To breathe thy neighbourhood, 
But thou art all unwitting 

As the ringdove in the wood. 
110 



BY NIGHT 

Between two oaks far-rooted 

A king-fern curls to sleep, 
I saw a velvet-footed 

Forester by it creep : 
The night-jar took his station 

And the wild wisp lit his torch, 
But thou art self-enfolded 

Like the rose upon thy porch. 



Does thy soul, in act and motion 

Unfettered, now dilate 
In the limitless ocean 

Of Being uncreate ? 
No more to us belonging, 

Touching our earth no more 
Than with its rhythmic breathing 

That breaks upon our shore. 



Or art thou in slumber holding 

Firmly to thine own kind ? 
But like an artist moulding 

Our landscape to thy mind? 
O to be thy companion 

Whether on wind or wave, 
Or to hold a torch before thee 

In an opalescent cave ! 



'Tis all figure and feigning 

When thou hast moved away ; 

If I knew where thou wert reigning 

I would come beneath thy sway. 

Ill 



SONGS AND LYRICS 

I would leave the Constellations 
And the blossoms in their bowers, 

I would leave the Moon and Vega 
To fulfil their ghostly hours. 



With thee to be secluded 

In a realm all thine and mine, 
Where never sun intruded 

Nor star had leave to shine; 
Where all events are passing 

In a more delicate light 
Than from the axle darteth 

Of the Charioteer in flight. 



In what climate should I meet thee 

To what sea-board should I fare ? 
Must I take wings to greet thee 

As swallows touch in the air? 
Dost thou see Miranda walking 

With a lute-governed grace? 
Or from a Nile-boat landing 

Meet Pharaoh face to face? 



Art thou thyself surprising 

By some peril drawing near ? 
Or some Masque art thou devising 

In which we all appear? 
Some pomp or dream-procession 

More ravishing to the mind 
Then e'er the Tuscan's pencil 

For the black Duke designed? 
112 



BY NIGHT 

Or art thou thwarted ever 

Like a traveller checked and foiled 
By a looped and linked river 

In wide Savannah coiled? 
Then in thy perturbation 

Thou might'st look round for me, 
And together we would wander 

Till the river found the sea. 



113 



V 

SONNETS 



LAW 

THE abyss, the expanse, the zenith of Thy power 
Thou hidest, that we be not stilled with awe, 
While through the quiet avenues of law 

Thou lead'st Thy flock in order, star and flower ; 

That Reason, more concurrent every hour 

With nature's rhythmic beat, and at each flaw 
Prompt to regain the measure, may withdraw 

From rash idolatry, though priest may lower. 



But as Religion in that ancient clan 

Freed from the worship of inhuman thrones, 

Stubbornly in its ritual proceeds, 
Nor quits the symbol, though the heavenly Man 
Prefigured to a full deliverance leads ; 
So Reason, void of reason, God disowns. 



117 



SONNETS 



DOUBT 

SHALL doubt be silent then as some pretend ? 
Nay, sift with doubt till faith and light agree, 
Spirits are ever by their birthright free ; 

In voluntary homage must they bend 

Who to Thy temple, Lord of truth, ascend ; 
For lo ! Thou seekest such to worship Thee, 
Who weigh with reason's pure integrity 

What purports to be thine, lest they offend. 

But without Faith shall Reason like a ghost 
Sigh for the wholesome body of the truth 

Nor be appeased till in blind ways uncouth 
Wide-wandering she is found and freed at length, 
As was Alcestis from that iron coast, 
By Hercules rejoicing in his strength. 



118 



THE ADVENT 

His awfulness is cast upon the night, 
His glory on the threshold of the morn, 
His beauty to the home of Truth is borne, 

His joy to enrich the sorrowing takes flight ; 

And narrowed to a point His Godhead's might 
Is bare and pure and to the sense forlorn, 
In its first motions seen, a child new-born, 

Gently assuming power, enforcing right. 

He walketh with the outcast by the way, 
With every new oppression He is wronged, 
And all the overburdened hear His sighs. 
O majesty of heaven, angel-thronged, 

Art Thou so well concealed ? Ah ! rather say 
This is Thyself, and all but this disguise. 



119 



SONNETS 



GALILEE 

AT night He seeks the mountain solitude, 
Bringing the nature He has made His own 
Under the eye of heaven apart, alone 

To knowledge of its true beatitude, 

And steeling to a firm and constant mood 

The pensive heart of man. There it is shown 
What it must dare, what suffer, how atone 

For false delights, and triumph in all good. 



Descending then, and more within the scene 
From meditation's trance, He looks above, 

And sees the sky changing at morning-break, 
As change His thoughts from holiness to love, 
Walking beside the stillness of the lake, 
And in His eyes the heavens are not clean. 



120 



MARY OF BETHANY 

By the Kedron. 

IF heart-beats were a language I would choose 
Some names for thee, but now I must be dumb, 
For to thy rightful praise I cannot come, 
With words that are devised for other use, 
And their great offers I must still refuse. 
Yea, rather bid the cloud-fed Kedron hum 
And lisp and murmur what I cannot sum, 
Than in vain titles thy dominion lose ; 
Whose looks are judgments. Day and Night at- 
tend 

Thy countenance, my King ; as thine eyes bend, 
Things slighted grow most dear ; things 

dearly prized, 

And thoughts familiar to the soul grow strange, 
And darkened by thy presence seem to change 
Their aspect, and be easily despised. 



121 



SONNETS 



INCARNATION 

PURE goodness is a balmy breath that blows 

A promise through the world from east to west ; 

And now a babe upon its mother's breast 
Whose innocence doth holiness enclose ; 
A child who in his breathings of repose 

Still in his Father's bosom seems to rest ; 

A youth awaking to a world opprest 
Whose patience with indignant passion glows ; 
Till perfect Man the kingship over men 

Shall claim resistless ; but no king discrown. 

Noiseless the passage of his sovereignty 
Over the vacant depths of thought, as when 

Beam upon beam of morning trembles down 
Between two islets of the southern sea. 



122 



DESCENT 

(3 SONNETS) 



DOWN through the ranks of men, past joy, past 

ease, 

Past groaning labour bent beneath the weight 
Of the world's dainty leisure and proud state, 

He passes, step by step through dark degrees ; 

Past fellowship, past succour, past release ; 

To that low ground where want doth meditate 
Darkly of God and man, accepting fate, 

Or cursing it, where judgments never cease 

That are for others' trespass : there He dwells ; 
And to Religion and to Virtue tells 

The truth profane, that this infected air 

Is the miasma of their righteousness, 

The effluence of the wisdom they profess, 
The Amen to each long complacent prayer. 



123 



SONNETS 



ii 

Man must himself his accusation write 
Of enmity to God, by One alone 
Humanly felt, and yet divinely known ; 
Known to far-seeing patience infinite, 
But in His low estate and mortal plight 

Breathed and embosomed with strong sighs of 

grief, 

Far-echoing through the olive's shuddering leaf, 
In the affrighted stillness of the night. 
Still downward through the man-sours vast do- 
main, 
Wherein no line or limit severeth 

God's peace from sorrow's gulf profound, he 

goes : 

Still measuring evil with the wand of pain ; 
Till earth's tumultuous cries no more oppose 
His silence, and the dead report His death. 



124 



Ill 

Herald of peace and truth, what quest is thine 
Within this shadow immense where never shone 
Till now God's comfort, Light : within the un- 
known 

Vast concave that completes the sphere divine ? 

Ye spirits who grow more sad or move malign 
With the star-circuits, He whom love alone 
And goodness shorn of other power and throne, 

Saved not from woe, visits your sad confine. 

What purposing, our servile spirits and rude 
Perceive not, and angelic wit may miss, 

But downward as on earth His path intends, 

By eyes of death encountered and pursued, 
Till in the lowest gloom of that abyss 

He turns, and looks above, and reascends. 



125 



SONNETS 



THE GARDEN 

WHEN from the future like a night-wind blows 
The menace of desertion, when the shame, 
And weakness of the alien mortal frame, 
Afflict Him and His righteous will oppose, 
Then must His Father's spirit all earthly foes, 
Fears, longings, loathings, with His searching 

flame, 
Thrust from the heart to keep that hour from 

blame, 

Whose shadow o'er the silent garden grows, 
Though in the stress of that relentless power 
The life drops stain His brow, 'tis for that hour ; 
Lest faulty nature should the mind attaint, 
Lest the tormented sense amid its throes 
Possess the parched lips with murmurs faint, 
That must in triumph of forgiveness close. 



126 



THE ASCENSION 

SILENT the well-known winding path they take ; 
A new illumination backward cast 
Upon their walks and wanderings in the past, 

Leads them again beside the brook, the lake, 

Upon the hill, at eve, or morning break, 
Or by the Temple-Court : to be held fast 
Each word, each scene, each vigil, to the last ; 

Pondered, recalled and treasured for His sake. 



But now rejoice ! Nothing can more offend 
The Prince of Peace ; Death's arrow on the 

wing 

Fell harmless, as that furious javelin hurled 
By Saul at David who must yet be king ! 
So musing they arrive, and see Him ascend, 
And as they see are changed and change 
the world. 



127 



SONNETS 



MARY OF MAGDALA 

A SEQUENCE OF SONNETS 

FIRST DAY 



LOOK not for dawn ; let the night blot the scene 

Where busy murderous men the Lord pursued, 
Let not the golden morning intervene, 

Flatter their thoughts, and give them hardi- 
hood. 
Darkness the judgment of the Lord recites, 

Let there be no more day, or let it be 
A deeper gloom between the starry nights, 

Oh that I heard from heaven this great decree ! 
"Let the earth sit in shadow of this deed, 

And with the will of God no more contend." 
What solace it would be in mourning weed 

To see this witness borne, and wait the end 
Patient, whether it be for hours or years 

Till in the skies our Glory reappears. 



128 



II 

Ye who from sin to greater sin with pride 
Advance, what will you do now this is done? 
Here you must pause ; in this comparison 

All other treason shall be faintly dyed, 

And cruelty to mercy be allied, 

Losing its name ; what glory can be won 
From shedding innocent blood now this has 
run, 

And from red earth to Heaven so loudly cried ? 

Each must recount his share in this great woe, 
If you would still be boasters, " I did this "- 
"I that ""I bore false witness " " Say you 

so? 
I brought the robe" "I smote him" "I did 

more, 

These fingers twisted him the crown he wore ; 
But where is he that hailed him with a 
kiss?" 



129 



SONNETS 



SECOND DAY 



Thy life comes back in day's continuance, 
And in the sense of being dwells unsought, 
And in the intercourse of thought with 
thought ; 

There is no circumstance or shift of chance 

But thee remembers and with thee doth glance ; 
Thou with the texture of our life enwrought 
Remainest : this a few sad hours have taught, 

And the slow passage of one day's advance. 

Art thou not present now within the scene? 

The door half open waits for thy footfall, 
Strangers we welcome, but 'tis thee we mean ; 

Thou comest with the sunbeam on the wall, 
And with the plane's great shadow on the grass, 
For there the children stood to see thee pass. 



130 



II 

But here and there a word I can array 
Of his deep doctrine for another's need, 
But for myself my wants and miseries read 

His wisdom in their own untutored way, 

More readily than sinless angels may, 

Who look from sphere to sphere with burning 

eyes; 
But one that is forgiven, though else unwise, 

Holds the pure truth hid in her heart alway. 



That warden of the beam, proud adamant, 

The pearl within the closed teeth of the shell 
Topaz and beryl where the moonbeams dwell, 
The chrysolite that throws sun-fire aslant 
Are not more faithful to the light they bear 
Than is my heart, which else holds nothing fair. 



131 



SONNETS 



in 

Thy life was still a gift, where'er thou art 
Thou must be giving. Oh that of thy store 
We might be still partakers evermore, 

Still in thy destiny to bear a part ! 

We would not ask if that were life or death, 
There is more room for thee where sorrows 

dwell, 
And were it Tophet thou art capable 

To give its shadows being with thy breath. 

Thy holiness we sinners do not dread 

That when it speaks is love ; each vile offence 

Melts in that double beam to innocence. 
Yea ; thee and only thee we will pursue, 

To hear whose voice the angels softly tread, 
For with a word thou makest all things 
new. 



132 



THIRD DAY 



Spices I bear, rose incense, balm and myrrh, 
Cassia and golden balms preservative, 
And Indian flowers with virtues that outlive 

Their beauty and what else may grace confer 

On the last rites that hands can minister. 
How small a part of us will then survive 
When to ourselves we dwindle, and derive 

No strength from Thee while day and night 
recur ! 



Then we descend into the world again, 

To hear the clamours and joint turbulence 

Of priestly bigotry and Roman power ; 
With petty cares dulling the soul intense ; 
Daring to live and see the rose in bloom 
And feel the sun, while Thou art in the 
tomb. 



133 



SONNETS 



ii 

The dove coos and the advent of the day 

Touches the cloud and robs the moon of light, 
And as I pause upon my doubtful way 

How peacefully the dawn puts by the night, 
And shows the half -budded leaves and flowering 

grass 
As though no change had jarred the world, 

but lo ! 
Between the cross and sepulchure I pass, 

And what has been, and what must be I 

know. 
Ah, foolish hope against dread certainty 

That came upon me in the hours of sleep ! 
Still looking forth for what can never be ! 
The day may wait, the night may watch and 

weep, 

He is not found within our boundaries, 
No nearer can he come than stars and skies. 



134 



Ill 

"(TO to My brethren." 

"Who can withhold Him? Who can bid Him 
pause ? 

Or set a bound where He intends a way? 

Or the advancement of His Kingdom stay ? 
Who to Himself the whole creation draws 
And bends the powers of ill to His just cause? 

O ransomed earth ! O Spring whose glad 
array 

From the beginning prophesied this day, 
Love's miracles are now our only laws !" 

So Mary triumphed, and sprang along the 

sward, 
Stooped to the flower, and reached up to the 

tree ; 
Then as wind-wafted faced that group 

forlorn, 
Holding the white branch of a flowering 

thorn, 

And breathless as the joy of infancy, 
Stammered the rapture : "I have seen the 
Lord!"

THE ANCESTOR 

A Quarterly Review of County and 

Family History, Heraldry 

and Antiquities 

EDITED BY OSWALD BARRON, F.S.A. 

Large Super Royal, in paper boards 

with numerous Illustrations 

5*. net Quarterly 

" Thoroughly original in scope and style, the publishers 
are to be congratulated on its effective appearance. The 
Ancestor intends to apply the spirit of a new and conscientious 
criticism to the revived interest in genealogy and family 
history." THE ATHEN^UM. 

" Such a new departure is certainly designed to fill a want 
which has long been felt, and the names of its contributors 
guarantee the accuracy and importance of its contents." 
THE TIMES. 

" Printed in old-faced type, and neatly bound in studious- 
looking boards, the new periodical makes a very handsome 
appearance. The pages of The Ancestor are brightened by 
portraits, illustrations of old armorial glass, and so on. It is 
edited carefully and with knowledge, and should command 
popularity among the large number of readers to whom it 
appeals." THE STANDARD. 

" Clearly printed on good paper, and freely and excellently 
illustrated. The literary contents of the number are of 
solid and varied interest. Altogether The Ancestor is quite 
admirable in its aims, which it seems determined to achieve 
in scholarly and attractive fashion." THE GLOBE. 

"The promise of a really authoritative periodical of English 
genealogy and family history will be received with general 
satisfaction. This is given us in the announcement of 'The 
Ancestor, a quarterly to be edited by Mr. Oswald Barron and 
published by Archibald Constable & Co., London. Mr. 
Barren's unusual knowledge in the field to be covered is 
well known to many who are interested in it. The list of 
contributors, including among others Sir George Sitwell, Sir 
H. Maxwell-Lyte, Mr. J. Horace Round, and Mr. St. John 
Hope, besides the editor, certainly supports the promise of 
accuracy and authority." THE NATION, NEW YORK.

This Atlas will be found of great use not only to tourists and

twenty-two plans of the principal towns of our Indian Empire,

in India.

The Hand Gazetteer of India is based on the Index to 
Constable's Hand Atlas of India, which contains nearly 12,000 
place-names. To these have been added very largely from 
various sources, bringing the number of entries to clpse upon 
20,000. The populations of districts, towns, and villages, and 
the position of each place are clearly indicated, thus forming 
within a small compass a general reference book to the topo- 
graphy of India, and a companion volume to the Hand Atlas 
of India.

Hit JEnCjlteb, New Edition in prepara- 
tion. 

This Miscellany embodies the results of more than fifteen 
years' persistent search after the rarest and most valuable 
Tracts and Poems in our Literature that are not generally 
known. Only one copy now survives of the original edition of 
many of these Texts ; and that copy is often not to be found 
in any Public Library. 

These volumes constitute a charming Pleasure Series of 
English Literature ; full of most varied and graphic Narra- 
tives, and of most delightful and diversified Poetry. 

But a much higher use than that can be made of this English 
Garner. All History is ultimately based upon eye-witness 
testimony, or upon written documents. This Series will throw 
floods of light upon many little-known facts, or periods, of 
England's past story. 

An English Garner also contains many hundreds of Poems, 
many of them written in the Golden Age of English Song. 
This Poetry represents almost every conceivable form of Eng- 
lish versification ; and its topics range 

' From grave to gay, from lively to severe ; ' 

or, to put it in another way, from Sir J. DAVIES' poem on the 
' Immortality of the Soul,' down to 'Old King Cole.'
