A Copy Of
Le Gallienne (1866-1947), English poet
little book, this grim November day,
O tired heart, to creep away, –
drink this wine and wear this fadeless rose,
heed the world, nor what the world shall say.
thousand gardens – yet to-day there blows
all their wintry walks no single rose,
here with Omar you shall find the Spring
fears no Autumn and eternal glows.
on the song-soft petals of his rhyme
your head, as in some golden clime,
let the beauty of eternity
from your brow the little frets of time.
from The Lonely
Dancer and Other Poems (1913)
