Let me prevail as of old, as lover, as lord, as king, or have done with Love's tyrant rule.
WILFRID SCAWEN BLUNT, To Nimue
- He who has once been happy is for aye
- Out of destruction's reach. His fortune then
- Holds nothing secret; and Eternity,
- Which is a mystery to other men,
- Has like a woman given him its joy.
WILFRID SCAWEN BLUNT, With Esther
