The New Love

Ah! what if thy last canticle be said,
Bright Archer of illusion adored of old,
Thou dream-fast Love in raiment burning-red,
Wreathed with white doves, quivered with burning gold?
Pass with thy Triumph of Lovers, Aucassin,
Tristram, and Pharamond, and Lancelot,
Dante, and Rudel, all thy haughty kin,
Princes in that high heaven, as we are not.--
With some gilt couchant sphinx both casqued and crowned,
All mailed in amethyst the new god comes,
Whose brooding beautiful eyes at last have found
Our uncanonical dark martyrdoms,
Who from the sombre catacombs of these
Brings his great miracles and mysteries.

The Ways Of Love
Hail the implacable Iconoclast Whose images of ivory and goldMake proud the dust that his enthusiast In her dark trance may very God behold.From the clear music of his delicate Peripheries and porches of delightHe draws her down through cruel gate on gate, Through immemorial, blind, implacable riteThat strips her of her dream-branched veils of youth, And naked, agonised like trodden grapes,Drags her before the imperishable Truth, The flaming Ecstacy wherefrom he shapesReal myth and doctrine.

Though cold clear cruelties like diamond Burthen this silken text of dim surmise,Surely thou knowest I am pity's bond If one but look at me with stricken eyes.If like a herald I have blazoned Pride, I am Humility's own renegade.For fruits of good and evil have I sighed? If Love forbid them, Love shall be obeyed.Though the wroth soul may excommunicate Her body, yet I see the flagrant strifeOf earthy and heavenly elements create Colour, change, music.
