This thorn
Doth to our rose of youth rightly belong. keep me from being too elated, a thorn was given me in the flesh...
The year's at the spring
And day's at the morn;
Ye banks and braes o' bonnie Doon,
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
The dead have been awakened--shall I sleep?
The world's at war with tyrants--shall I crouch?
Consciousness is much more than the thorn, it is the dagger in the flesh.
'Who knocks?' 'I, who was beautiful,
Beyond all dreams to restore,
This is the gospel of labour, ring it, ye bells of the kirk!
The Lord of Love came down from above, to live with the men who
No ray is dimmed, no atom worn,
My oldest force is good as new,
Sovran of beauty! like the spray she grows,
Compassed she is with thorns and cankered bower.
