WITH HER THERE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: With her rose and shadowed beauty
Last Line: And love bore a flame.
Subject(s): Love

With her rose and shadowed beauty,
Her clear goodness, her love's might,
In her little darkened chamber
She rests, and it is light.

Like a strange sister, Beauty, with folded wings,
Dreams of a fair land;
She is fashioned of frail things
And holds a flower in her hand.

Goodness, her comrade of old,
Sleeps on her virgin breasts;
In her hand, under her curls of gold,
A pale pearl rests.

But Love alert and smiling
Into her slumber came;
Stirred her soul with soft beguiling—
And Love bore a flame.
