The Sleeve of Night, Edmund Dulac

The Sleve of Night

Earth could not answer;
nor the Seas that mourn
In flowing Purple,
of their Lord Forlorn;
Nor rolling Heaven,
with all his Signs reveal'd
And hidden by
the sleeve of Night and Morn.

Human or Divine, Edmund Dulac

Human or Divine

Perplext no more
with Human or Divine,
To-morrow's tangle
to the winds resign,
And lose your fingers
in the tresses of
The Cypress-slender
Minister of Wine.

Heaven but the Vision of Fulfilled Desire, Edmund Dulac

The Vision of Fulfilled Desire

Heav'n but the Vision
of fulfill'd Desire,
And Hell the Shadow
of a Soul on fire,
Cast on the Darkness
into which Ourselves,
So late emerged from,
shall so soon expire.

Solitary Ringdove, Edmund Dulac

Solitary Ringdove

The Palace that to Heav'n
his pillars threw,
And Kings the forehead
on his threshold drew — I saw
the solitary Ringdove there,
And "Coo, coo, coo," she cried;
and "Coo, coo, coo."

The Blowing Rhose, Edmund Dulac

The Blowing Rose

Look to the blowing Rose
about us — "Lo,
Laughing," she says,
"into the world I blow,
At once the silken tassel
of my Purse
Tear, and its Treasure
on the Garden throw."

And in your joyous errand
reach the spot
Where I made One —

A New Marriage, Edmund Dulac

A New Marriage

You know, my Friends,
how bravely in my House
for a new Marriage
I did make Carouse.

Watching A Potter, Edmund Dulac

Watching a Potter

For I remember
stopping by the way
To watch a Potter
thumping his wet Clay:
And with its all-obliterated Tongue
It murmur'd —
"Gently, Brother, gently, pray!"

Peace to Mahmud on his Golden Throne, Edmund Dulac

Peace to Mahmud

With me along the strip
of Herbage strown
That just divides
the desert from the sown,
Where name of Slave
and Sultan is forgot —
And Peace to Mahmud
on his golden Throne!

That Spring Should Vanish with the Rose, Edmund Dulac

That Spring Should Vanish

That Spring Should Vanish
with the Rose
That Youth's Sweet-scented
manuscript should close!
The Nightingale
that in the branches sang,
Ah whence, and whither
flown again, who knows?
So late emerged from,
shall so soon expire.

All Are But Stories, Edmund Dulac

All are But Stories

All Are But Stories
which, awke from Sleep,
They told their fellows,
and to Sleep return'd. Nor rolling Heaven,
with all his Signs reveal'd
And hidden by
the sleeve of Night and Morn.

Angel of the Drink of Darkness, Edmund Dulac

Angel of the Drink of Darkness

So when at last
the Angel of the Drink
of Darkness finds you
by the river-brink,
And, proffering his Cup,
invites your Soul
Forth to your Lips to quaff it —
do not shrink.
