Lines Written at Easter

1. I say, let the night come! Let the cold moon cower behind its borrowed brightness – Let its heart be broken Through its raging loneliness, Which only the human soul has known. Let it walk the sky all night, Like a lonely walk down an empty street, Let it know the burden of wounded feet. …

Ode to a Beauty I Once Knew

Ode to a beauty I once knew, Who was a woman full of class, Revealing nothing through Mere sight. But, her beauty did embrace me one time, Through her eyes; And I came running, As one inexperienced in loving. …
