Verses from ‘The Gates of Paradise’
[Epilogue]. To the Accuser who is The God of this World
 
TRULY, my Satan, thou art but a dunce,
And dost not know the garment from the man;
Every harlot was a virgin once,
Nor canst thou ever change Kate into Nan.
 
Tho’ thou art worship’d by the names divine        5
Of Jesus and Jehovah, thou art still
The Son of Morn in weary Night’s decline,
The lost traveller’s dream under the hill.
