Don Juan
By D. H. Lawrence
IT is Isis the mystery
Must be in love with me.
Here this round ball of earth,
Where all the mountains sit
Solemn in groups,        5
And the bright rivers flit
Round them for girth:
Here the trees and troops
Darken the shining grass;
And many bright people pass        10
Like plunder from heaven:
Many bright people pass
Plundered from heaven.
But what of the mistresses,
What the beloved seven?        15
—They were but witnesses,
I was just driven.
Where is there peace for me?
It is Isis the mystery
Must be in love with me.        20
