LOVE IN DIAN'S LAP: 5. SCALA JACOBI PORTAQUE EBURNEA, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Her soul from earth to heaven lies
Last Line: Hesper's filmy traffickers!


HER soul from earth to Heaven lies,
Like the ladder of the vision,
Whereon go
To and fro,
In ascension and demission,
Star-flecked feet of Paradise.

Now she is drawn up from me,
All my angels, wet-eyed, tristful,
Gaze from great
Heaven's gate
Like pent children, very wistful,
That below a playmate see.

Dream-dispensing face of hers!
Ivory port which loosed upon me
Wings, I wist,
Whose amethyst
Trepidations have forgone me, --
Hesper's filmy traffickers!
