Page 805
Pleasure with pain for leaven,
  Summer with flowers that fell,
Remembrance fallen from heaven,
  And Madness risen from hell,
Strength without hands to smite,
  Love that endures for a breath;
Night, the shadow of light,
  And Life, the shadow of death.
 
          Atalanta in Calydon. Chorus.
7854
    His speech is a burning fire.
          Atalanta in Calydon. Chorus.
7855
    His life is a watch or a vision
  Between a sleep and a sleep.
          Atalanta in Calydon. Chorus.
7856
    At the door of life by the gate of breath,
There are worse things waiting for men than death.
          The Triumph of Time.
7857
    And lo, between the sundawn and the sun
His day’s work and his night’s work are undone:
And lo, between the nightfall and the light,
He is not, and none knoweth of such an one.
          Laus Veneris.
7858
    Ah, yet would God this flesh of mine might be
Where air might wash and long leaves cover me;
Where tides of grass break into foam of flowers,
Or where the wind’s feet shine along the sea.
          Laus Veneris.
7859
    Marvellous mercies and infinite love.
          Les Noyades.
7860
    Forget that I remember
  And dream that I forget.
          Rococo.
7861
    Our way is where God knows
  And Love knows where:
We are in Love’s hand to-day.
          Love at Sea.
7862
    Despair the twin-born of devotion.
          Dolores.
