L'ENVOI, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The dreamer nods, and honeyed sleep
Last Line: "it lives... It lives beyond the years."

The dreamer nods, and honeyed sleep
His eyelids woo; his day is done.
No more the vision burns his soul,
But lives within his memory.
Her shadow mantle Evening drops;
The bee is drowsy on the vine;
From heart of rose the pollen drips,
And dripping blinds the fairy's eye.
Across the surging tide of Night
Comes reasonant the voice of God
"Oh Love! -- True love is best of all;
It lives... it lives beyond the years."
