In Memoriam : Francis Archibald Douglas Poem by Lord Alfred Douglas

In Memoriam : Francis Archibald Douglas

Rating: 3.0


Dear friend, dear brother, I have owed you this
Since many days, the tribute of a song.
Shall I cheat you who never did a wrong
To any man ? No, therefore though I miss
All art, all skill, in this short armistice
From my soul's war against the bitter throng
Of present woes, let these poor lines be strong

In love enough to bear a brother's kiss.
Dear saint, true knight, I cannot weep for you,
Nor if I could would I call back the breath
To your dear body ; God is very wise,
All that this year had in its womb He knew,
And, loving you, He sent His Son like Death,
To put His hand over your kind gray eyes.

A truly despicable, repugnant man. Making the death of a beloved brother, all about himself.
