Contents: What thing is this that, built of salt and lime --
This beast that rends me in the sight of all --
No lack of counsel from the shrewd and wise --
Nay, learned doctor, these fine leeches fresh --
Of all that ever in extreme disease --
Since I cannot persuade you from this mood --
Night is my sister, and how deep in love --
Yet in an hour to come, disdainful dust --
When you are dead, and your disturbing eyes --
Strange thing that I, by nature nothing prone --
Not in a silver casket cool with pearls --
Olympian gods, mark now my bedside lamp --
I said, seeing how the winter gale increased --
Since of no creature living the last breath --
My worship from this hour the Sparrow-Drawn --
I dreamed I moved among the Elysian fields --
Sweet love, sweet thorn, when lightly to my heart --
Shall I be prisoner till my pulses stop --
My most distinguished guest and learned friend Think not, nor for a moment let your mind --
Gone in good sooth you are: not even in dream --
Now by this moon, before this moon shall wane --
I know the face of Falsehood and her tongue --
Whereas at morning in a jeweled crown --
Peril upon the paths of this desire --
Women have loved before as I love now --
Moon, that against the lintel of the west --
When we are old and these rejoincing veins --
Heart, have no pity on this house of bone --
Love is not all: it is not meat nor drink --
When we that wore the myrtle wear the dust --
Time, that is pleased to lengthen out the day --
Sorrowful dreams remembered after waking --
Most wicked words, forbear to speak them out --
Clearly my ruined garden as it stood --
Hearing your words, and not a word among them --
Believe, if ever the bridges of this town --
You say: "Since life is cruel enough at best" --
Love me no more, now let the god depart --
You loved me not at all, but let it go --
I said in the beginning, did I not --
O ailing Love, compose your struggling wing --
Summer, be seen no more within this wood --
If to be left were to be left alone I know my mind and I have made my choice --
Even in the moment of our earliest kiss --
Well, I have lost you; and I lost you fairly --
Now by the path I climbed, I journey back --
There is a well into whose bottomless eye --
The heart once broken is a heart no more --
If in the years to come you should recall --
Oh, sleep forever in the Latmian cave
Responsibility: by Edna St. Vincent Millay.
