TOWARDS DEMOCRACY: PART 3. THE WIND OF MAY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: O glorious wind, that in my lover's face blowest
Last Line: Disclose thy heart, o wind, and the love thou bearest.
Subject(s): Beauty; Hearts; Love


O GLORIOUS wind, that in my lover's face blowest,
Even as now in mine—though the deep sea part us—
Fragrant wind, with heart so tenderly laden,
Tell him, my lover, against whose face thou goest,
In his ears and nostrils and eyes and thick hair rippling—
Whose passion-fountain he too, nightlong, daylong,
Drinks at, inbreathing thee—sweet wind, O tell him
My love like thine for ever endures, and fails not.

Great cloud-wet wind, through the thick woods heavily trailing,
Mid millions of flowers their sex-life's sweetness exhaling,
Hyacinth-bell and May-bloom in countless beauty:
Feed him, body and soul, with secrets fairest,
Disclose thy heart, O wind, and the love thou bearest.
