Ernest Christopher Dowson quotes- 5 of
From troublous sights and sounds set free;
In such a twilight hour of breath,
Yet, when the walls of flesh grow weak,
In such an hour it may well be,
Better than mortal flowers,
Thy moon-kissed roses seem: better than love or sleep,
They are not long, the weeping and the laughter,
Love and desire and hate:
They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
