O Maytime Woods! O Maytime Woods!

O Maytime Woods!
From the idyll "Wild Thorn and Lily"O Maytime woods! O Maytime lanes and hours!And stars, that knew how often there at nightBeside the path woodbine odors blewBetween the drowsy eyelids of the dusk,--When, like a great, white, pearly moth, the moonHung silvering long windows of your room,--I stood among the shrubs! The dark house slept.I watched and waited for--I know not what!--Some tremor of your gown: a velvet leaf'sUnfolding to caresses of the Spring:The rustle of your footsteps: or the dewSyllabling avowal on a tulip's lipsOf odorous scarlet: or the whispered wordOf something lovelier than new leaf or rose--The word...

Hymn To Spiritual Desire
IMother of visions, with lineaments dulcet as numbersBreathed on the eyelids of Love by music that slumbers,Secretly, sweetly, O presence of fire and snow,Thou comest mysterious,In beauty imperious,Clad on with dreams and the light of no world that we know:Deep to my innermost soul am I shaken,Helplessly shaken and tossed,And of thy tyrannous yearnings so utterly taken,My lips, unsatisfied, thirst;Mine eyes are accurstWith longings for visions that far in the night are forsaken;And mine ears, in listening lost,Yearn, waiting the note of a chord that will never awaken.IILike palpable music thou comest, like moonlight; and far,--Resonant bar upon bar,--The vibrating lyreOf...
