When men adored thee and thy ways
   All else above;
Named thee the Boy, the Bright, the One
Who spread a heaven beneath the sun,"
   I said to Love.

   I said to him,
"We now know more of thee than then;
We were but weak in judgment when,
   With hearts abrim,
We clamoured thee that thou would'st please

She, To Him, Iv

This love puts all humanity from me;
I can but maledict her, pray her dead,

Save as some unit I would add love by;
But this I know, my being is but thine own—
Fused from its separateness by ecstasy.
