First Line: The poet roams at will where heartsease grows
Last Line: On them has been bestowed apollo's kiss.
Subject(s): Houses; Poetry & Poets; Sonnet (as Literary Form)

The poet roams at will where heartsease grows;
He dwells in haunts of beauty all his days;
The joy of love in all its moods he knows;
His heart responds to all of nature's ways.
He speaks for men the words they could not find;
He feels the grief of all who see death's face;
He only has the mother's joy divined,
Sorrow of lovers in a last embrace.
Dream-emperor in a world of dreams avowed;
A welcome guest wherever fairies be;
His heart goes sailing on a summer cloud,
And wears a mantle of white ecstasy.
If poets had no other meed but this,
On them has been bestowed Apollo's kiss.
