    Asking for Roses

    A house that lacks, seemingly, mistress and master,
    With doors that none but the wind ever closes,
    Its floor all littered with glass and with plaster;
    It stands in a garden of old-fashioned roses.

    I pass by that way in the gloaming with Mary;
    'I wonder,' I say, 'who the owner of those is.'
    'Oh, no one you know,' she answers me airy,
    'But one we must ask if we want any roses.'

    So we must join hands in the dew coming coldly
    There in the hush of the wood that reposes,
    And turn and go up to the open door boldly,
    And knock to the echoes as beggars for roses.

    'Pray, are you within there, Mistress Who-were-you? '
    'Tis Mary that speaks and our errand discloses.
    'Pray, are you within there? Bestir you, bestir you!
    'Tis summer again; there's two come for roses.

    'A word with you, that of the singer recalling-
    Old Herrick: a saying that every maid knows is
    A flower unplucked is but left to the falling,
    And nothing is gained by not gathering roses.'

    We do not loosen our hands' intertwining
    (Not caring so very much what she supposes) ,
    There when she comes on us mistily shining
    And grants us by silence the boon of her roses. read more »

    The Embrace

    You weren't well or really ill yet either;
    just a little tired, your handsomeness
    tinged by grief or anticipation, which brought
    to your face a thoughtful, deepening grace. read more »

    A Happy Man

    When these graven lines you see,
    Traveller, do not pity me;
    Though I be among the dead,
    Let no mournful word be said. read more »

    To Hope

    WHEN by my solitary hearth I sit,
    And hateful thoughts enwrap my soul in gloom;
    When no fair dreams before my "mind's eye" flit,
    And the bare heath of life presents no bloom; read more »

    Despair

    I have experienc'd
    The worst, the World can wreak on me--the worst
    That can make Life indifferent, yet disturb
    With whisper'd Discontents the dying prayer-- read more »

    Adieu, Adieu! My Native Shore

    Adieu, adieu! my native shore
    Fades o'ver the waters blue;

    Verbal Whips

    Still applying tilak have turned fifty-three
    and worn out are the holes of the rosary.
    Exhausted are feet from pilgrimage
    but not seen yet the Lord's visage. read more »

    The Book of Urizen: Chapter V

    1. In terrors Los shrunk from his task:
    His great hammer fell from his hand:
    His fires beheld, and sickening,
