Thomas Bateson Poems

1. Love is The Fire 12/31/2002
2. Sister, Awake! Close not Your Eyes 5/9/2001
3. Phyllis, farewell 12/31/2002

Phyllis, farewell

Phyllis, farewell, I may no longer live;
Yet if I die, fair Phyllis, I forgive.
I live too long; come, gentle death and end
My endless torment, or my grief amend.
