IN HADES, by            
First Line: Then saw I, with gray eyes fulfilled of rest
Last Line: "he knew the whole - and could not choose but turn!"


THEN saw I, with gray eyes fulfilled of rest,
And lulling voice, a woman sweet, and she,--
"Bear thou my word: I am of all most blest;
Nor marvel that I am Eurydice.
I stood and watched those slow feet go from me
Farther and farther; in the light afar,
All clear the figure grew -- then suddenly
Into my dark his face flashed like a star!--
And that was all. The purple vaporous door
Left me triumphant over time and space;
Sliding across between forevermore,
It could not hide the glory of that face.
For me no room to doubt, no need to learn--
He knew the whole - and could not choose but turn!"
