TWO PRELUDES: 1. LOHENGRIN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Love, out of the depth of things
Last Line: Love.
Subject(s): Clouds; Love; Roundels; Soul

LOVE, out of the depth of things,
As a dewfall felt from above,
From the heaven whence only springs
Love --

Love, heard from the heights thereof,
The clouds and the watersprings,
Draws close as the clouds remove.

And the soul in it speaks and sings,
A swan sweet-souled as a dove,
An echo that only rings
