THE HOPELESS PASSION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Wanton and cheat and liar
Last Line: Life!
Subject(s): Hearts; Passion


Wanton and cheat and liar,
Wrecker of rosy schemes,
Balking my heart's desire,
Spoiling my fondest dreams,
Bringing, with pain and sorrow,
Little of joy to bless,
Promising for the morrow
—Less;

False as an empty vision,
Harsh as a cruel spell,
You with the face elysian,
You with the heart of hell,
Jade, I am sickened of you,
Maker of pain and strife,
—Nevertheless I love you,
Life!
