  • A Last Word
       Let us go hence: the night is now at hand;
  • Ad Domnulam Suam
       Little lady of my heart !
  • Amor Profanus
       Beyond the pale of memory,
  • April Love
       We have walked in Love's land a little way,
  • Epigram
       Because I am idolotrous and have besought
  • Exchanges
       All that I had I brought
  • Growth
       I watched the glory of her childhood change,
  • In a Breton Cemetery
       They sleep well here,
  • In Tempore Senectutis
       When I am old,
  • Jadis
       Erewhile, before the world was old,
  • Moon Maiden's Song, The
       Sleep! Cast thy canopy
  • Non Sum Qualis eram Bonae Sub Regno Cynarae
       Last night, ah, yesternight, betwixt her lips and mine
  • Nuns of the Perpetual Adoration
       Calm, sad, secure; behind high convent walls,
  • To One in Bedlam
       With delicate, mad hands, behind his sordid bars,
  • Vitae Summa Brevis Spem Nos Vetat Incohare Longam
       They are not long, the weeping and the laughter,
  • What Is Love?
       What is Love?
  • Yvonne of Brittany
       In your mother's apple-orchard,
