George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
122. The Dream
 
 
I WOKE to find my pillow wet
  With the tears for deeds deep hid in sleep.
I knew no sorrow here, but yet
  The tears fell softly through the deep.
 
Your eyes, your other eyes of dream,        5
  Looked at me through the veil of blank;
I saw their joyous, starlit gleam
  Like one who watches rank on rank.
 
His victor airy legions wind
  And pass before his awful throne—        10
Was there thy loving heart unkind,
  Was I thy captive all o’erthrown?
