AMOR TRIUMPHANS: 11. AFTER ROMEO AND JULIET, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Love, where the summer night is ripe and odorous
Last Line: Faint, though the sky is brightening to the breaking morn
Subject(s): Love; Romeo & Juliet


Love, where the summer night is ripe and odorous,
Flushed with the spilt wine of the golden-hearted stars,
Out of the garden's dusk and those funereal bars
I hear the voice of Romeo, Juliet calling us
Unto the marriage-grave of love's too keen delight;
And in the voice of Juliet I have heard the cry
(O heart, to put on passion's immortality!)
Of your wild heart to mine, under a winter night.
Out of the winter night a little light is born,
Yet still in shadowy ways our love goes wandering,
Our heavy-hearted pilgrim love, a way-worn thing,
Faint, though the sky is brightening to the breaking morn
