THE LOVE SONNETS OF PROTEUS: 55. ST. VALENTINE'S DAY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: To-day, all day, I rode upon the down,
Last Line: My horse a thing of wings, myself a god.
Subject(s): Holidays; Love; Valentine's Day


TO-DAY, all day, I rode upon the down,
With hounds and horsemen, a brave company
On this side in its glory lay the sea,
On that the Sussex weald, a sea of brown.
The wind was light, and brightly the sun shone,
And still we gallop'd on from gorse to gorse:
And once, when check'd, a thrush sang, and my horse
Prick'd his quick ears as to a sound unknown.
I knew the Spring was come. I knew it even
Better than all by this, that through my chase
In bush and stone and hill and sea and heaven
I seem'd to see and follow still your face.
Your face my quarry was. For it I rode,
My horse a thing of wings, myself a god.
