Rhymes A La Mode - Amaryllis

Amaryllis

(Theocritus, Idyll, iii.)


Fair Amaryllis, wilt thou never peep
From forth the cave, and call me, and be mine?
Lo, apples ten I bear thee from the steep,
These didst thou long for, and all these are thine.
Ah, would I were a honey-bee to sweep
Through ivy, and the bracken, and woodbine;
To watch thee waken, Love, and watch thee sleep,
Within thy grot below the shadowy pine.
Now know I Love, a cruel god is he,
The wild beast bare him in the wild wood drear;
And truly to the bone he burneth me.
But, black-browed Amaryllis, ne'er a tear,
Nor sigh, nor blush, nor aught have I from thee;
Nay, nor a kiss, a little gift and dear.

Criticism of Life(Hippol, Eurip .P., 252-266.)Long life hath taught me many things, and shownThat lukewarm loves for men who die are best,Weak wine of liking let them mix alone,Not Love, that stings the soul within the breast;Happy, who wears his love-bonds lightliest,Now cherished, now away at random thrown!Grievous it is for other's grief to moan,Hard that my soul for thine should lose her rest!Wise ruling this of life: but yet againPerchance too rigid diet is not well;He lives not best who dreads the coming painAnd shunneth each delight desirable:FLEE THOU EXTREMES, this word alone is plain,Of all that God hath given
