Stop Button Clutter!
Which
Corinne Robinson (1861-1933), American poet

We ask that Love shall rise to the divine,
And yet we crave him very human, too;
Our hearts would drain the crimson of his
wine,
Our souls despise him if he prove untrue!
Poor Love! I hardly see what you can do!
We know all human things are weak and frail,
And yet we claim that very part of you,
Then, inconsistent, blame you if you fail.
When you would soar, 'tis we who clip your
wings,
Although we weep because you faint and fall.
Alas! it seems we want so many things,
That no dear love could ever grant them all!
Which shall we choose, the human or divine,
The crystal stream, or yet the crimson wine?


from The Second Book of Modern Verse (1919)
