Coventry Kearsey Deighton Patmore. (1823–1896)
 
 
1
    The sunshine dreaming upon Salmon’s height
Is not so sweet and white
As the most heretofore sin-spotted Soul
That darts to its delight
Straight from the absolution of a faithful fight.
          Peace.
2
    Life is not life at all without delight.
          Victory in Defeat.
3
        To have nought
Is to have all things without care or thought!
          Legem Tuam Dilexi.
4
    For want of me the world’s course will not fail;
When all its work is done the lie shall rot;
The truth is great and shall prevail
When none cares whether it prevail or not.
          Magna est Veritas.
5
    None thrives for long upon the happiest dream.
          Tired Memory.
6
    The flower of olden sanctities.
          1867.
