    The late Dr. J. Vernon McGee quoted a poem by Sydney Lanier in his sermon. I'm unable to recognize in listed poems which poem quote was taken from. Can anyone help me?
    The following line is qujoted from aLanier's poem: Where are the strong arms in which I too might lay me in repose and yet be full of the fire of life
    Thank you

    What a find! I discovered Sidney Lanier yesterday and so have a new old poet to delve into. Also his The Science of poetry, or maybe it was verse.

An Evening Song.

Look off, dear Love, across the sallow sands,
And mark yon meeting of the sun and sea,
How long they kiss in sight of all the lands.

Now in the sea's red vintage melts the sun,
As Egypt's pearl dissolved in rosy wine,
And Cleopatra night drinks all. 'Tis done,
Love, lay thine hand in mine.
