Ernest Myers Poems
Blood of my blood, bone of my bone, Heart of my being's heart, Strange visitant, yet very son; All this, and more, thou art.
The Seamaids’ Music
One moment the boy, as he wander’d by night Where the far spreading foam in the moonbeam was white,
Etsi Omnes, Ego Non
HERE where under earth his head Finds a last and lonely bed, Let him speak upon the stone: Etsi omnes, ego non.
I ON through the Libyan sand Rolls ever, mile on mile, League on long league, cleaving the rainless land,

Blood of my blood, bone of my bone,
Heart of my being's heart,
Strange visitant, yet very son;
All this, and more, thou art.
In thy soft lineaments I trace,
More winning daily grown,
The sweetness of thy mother's face
Transfiguring my own.
That grave but all untroubled gaze,
So rapt yet never dim,
Seems following o'er their starry ways
The wings of cherubim.
Two worlds man hardly may descry,
(For manhood clouds them o'er),
Commingled to mine inward eye
Are shadowed forth once more:
That lost world, whither man's regret
