George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
57. Pain
 
 
MEN have made them gods of love,
Sun-gods, givers of the rain,
Deities of hill and grove:
I have made a god of Pain.
 
Of my god I know this much,        5
And in singing I repeat,
Though there’s anguish in his touch,
Yet his soul within is sweet.
