At the Three Fountains
By Arthur Symons
HERE, where God lives among the trees,
  Where birds and monks the whole day sing
His praises in a pleasant ease,
O heart, might we not find a home
  Here, after all our wandering?        5
These gates are closèd, even on Rome.
Souls of the twilight wander here;
  Here, in the garden of that death
Which was for love’s sake, need we fear
How sharp with bitter joy might be        10
  Love’s lingering, last, longed-for breath,
Shut in upon eternity?
