William Rose Benet

(1886-1950 / United States)

His Ally

He fought for his soul, and the stubborn fighting
Tried hard his strength.
'One needs seven souls for thin long requiting,'
He said at length.

'Six times have I come where my first hope jeered me
And laughed me to scorn;
But now I fear as I never feared me
To fall forlorn.
