HOMAGE, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: Elvira, by love's grace
Last Line: Is without passers.
Subject(s): Beauty


Elvira, by love's grace
There goeth before you
A clear radiance
Which maketh all vain souls
Candles when noon is.

The loud clangor of pretenders
Melteth before you
Like the roll of carts passing,
But you come silently
And homage is given.

Now the little by-path
Which leadeth to love
Is again joyful with its many;
And the great highway
From love
Is without passers.
