ASOLANDO: A PEARL, A GIRL, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A simple ring with a single stone
Last Line: Through the love in a girl!
Subject(s): Love

A SIMPLE ring with a single stone,
To the vulgar eye no stone of price:
Whisper the right word, that alone --
Forth starts a sprite, like fire from ice,
And lo, you are lord (says an Eastern scroll)
Of heaven and earth, lord whole and sole
Through the power in a pearl.

A woman ('t is I this time that say)
With little the world counts worthy praise
Utter the true word -- out and away
Escapes her soul: I am wrapt in blaze,
Creation's lord, of heaven and earth
Lord whole and sole -- by a minute's birth --
Through the love in a girl!
