Subject(s): Desire; Hearts; Love


ADOWN the sapphire race-course of the skies
Apollo, now, has whipped his steeds of fire,
And in the court of Night has sought his lyre
To sing his songs of deathless human ties;
Then all the Gods are wakened with surprise
To learn of love which equals their desire —
A love through which men's souls are lifted higher,
So high — they reach the gates of Paradise: —

And list'ning here amid the even calm,
I hear thy name rise on the flights of song
Till stars re-echo it in heaven's dome:
They tell me, dear, thy life is like a psalm
Wherein the chords of love are struck so strong
That thy great heart must ever be my home.
