Excerpt from The Venusiad: And Other Poems

Christine, into what better hands than thine,
Could I, this little book - my soul in song -
Give for time's keeping? There are those who long
Fair Maidens, that to them I should consign,
Such as it is, the honour. But I pine
After no Juliet of the garish throng;
For there are none more fair, and none more strong,
In all that makes a human soul divine.
Take, then, this little book, and with it take,
A brother's love, and one who found in thee,
Always a friend. For thou did'st gently wake,
With music, oft my soul's inapathy;
As burst the waters of a mountain lake,
O'er rocky ridges tumbling to the sea.
