Table of Contents

Clear in the morning I can see them sometimes: Men, gods and ghosts, slim girls and graces— Then the light grows, noon burns, and soon there come times When I see but the pale and ravaged places Their glory long ago adorned.—And seeing My whole soul falters as an invalid Too often cheered. Did something in their being Of worth go from them when my ideal did?

Men, gods and ghosts, cast down by that young damning, You have no answer; I but heard you say, “Why, we are weak. We failed a bit in shamming.”

—So I am free! Will freedom always weigh So much around my heart? For your defection, Break! You who had me in your keeping, break! Fall From that great height to this great imperfection!

Yet I must weep.—Yet can I hate you all?

First Love.

Table of Contents

All my ways she wove of light, Wove them all alive,

Made them warm and beauty bright…

So the trembling ambient air Clothes the golden waters where The pearl fishers dive.

When she wept and begged a kiss Very close I’d hold her,

And I know so well in this

Fine fierce joy of memory

She was very young like me

Though half an aeon older.
