    Elegy to the Memory of an Unfortunate Lady

    What beck'ning ghost, along the moon-light shade

    'Tis she!--but why that bleeding bosom gor'd,
    Why dimly gleams the visionary sword? read more »

    Elegy IX: The Autumnal

    No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
    As I have seen in one autumnal face.
    Young beauties force our love, and that's a rape,
    This doth but counsel, yet you cannot scape. read more »

    A Hymn To Frost

    Old leaves have no defence against the wind.
    A gray hawk is October's inner cry.

    Elegy IV: The Perfume

    Once, and but once found in thy company,
    All thy supposed escapes are laid on me;

  • 29.

    About a year has passed. I've returned to the place of the battle,
    to its birds that have learned their unfolding of wings
    from a subtle
    lift of a surprised eyebrow, or perhaps from a razor blade read more »

    Elegy VII

    Nature's lay idiot, I taught thee to love,

    Too subtle: Foole, thou didst not understand
    The mystic language of the eye nor hand: read more »

    Elegy VIII: The Comparison

    As the sweet sweat of roses in a still,
    As that which from chafed musk-cats' pores doth trill,
    As the almighty balm of th' early East,

    March Elegy

    and there--proud, brazen, effluence from the mold of emptiness--
    the gilded hubbub, the bursting monument. read more »

    Elegy III: Change

    Although thy hand and faith, and good works too,
