"Between Us Now"

Between us now and here Two thrown together Who are not wont to wear Life's flushest feather Who see the scenes slide past, The daytimes dimming fast, Let there be truth at last, Even if despair. o thoroughly and long !ave you now "nown me, o real in faith and strong !ave # now shown me, That nothing needs disguise $urther in any wise, %r as"s or &ustifies ' guarded tongue. $ace unto face, then, say, Eyes mine own meeting, #s your heart far away, %r with mine beating( When false things are brought low, 'nd swift things have grown slow, $eigning li"e froth shall go, $aith be for aye.

"Heap cassia, sandal-buds and stripes"

!eap cassia, sandal-buds and stripes %f labdanum, and aloe-balls, meared with dull nard an #ndian wipes $rom out her hair2 such balsam falls )own sea-side mountain pedestals, $rom tree-tops where tired winds are fain, pent with the vast and howling main, To treasure half their island-gain. 'nd strew faint sweetness from some old Egyptian's fine worm-eaten shroud Which brea"s to dust when once unrolled3 %r shredded perfume, li"e a cloud $rom closet long to 4uiet vowed, With mothed and dropping arras hung, 1ouldering her lute and boo"s among, 's when a 4ueen, long dead, was young.
