To B. O’G.



Horace calls no more to me,

Homer in the dust-heap lies:

I have found my Odyssey

In the lightness of her glee,

In the laughter of her eyes.



Ovid’s page is thumbed no more,

E’en Catullus has no choice!

There is endless, precious lore,

Such as I ne’er knew before,

In the music of her voice.



Breath of hyssop steeped in wine,

Breath of violets and furze,

Wild-wood roses, Grecian myrrhs,

All these perfumes do combine

In that maiden breath of hers.



Nay, I look not at the skies,

Nor the sun that hillward slips,

For the day lives or it dies

In the laughter of her eyes,

In the music of her lips!
