I have learnt to love you late, Beauty at once so ancient and so new!
Follow your saint, follow with accents sweet;
Haste you, sad notes, fall at her flying feet.
...
A narrow Fellow in the Grass
Occasionally rides--
The Wind begun to rock the Grass
With threatening Tunes and low--
Cut grass lies frail:
Brief is the breath
Mown stalks exhale,
Methought I saw my late espous├Ęd saint
Brought to me like Alcestis from the grave.
Pile the bodies high at Austerlitz and Waterloo.
Shovel them under and let me work--
I am the grass; I cover all.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot!
...
Gentlemen in England now abed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
...
The heretic is always better dead. And mortal eyes cannot distinguish the saint from the heretic.
