THE UNKNOWN EROS

   “Deliciae meae esse cum filiis hominum.” 
   PROV.  VIII. 31.

PROEM.

’Many speak wisely, some inerrably: 
Witness the beast who talk’d that should have bray’d,
And Caiaphas that said
Expedient ’twas for all that One should die;
But what avails
When Love’s right accent from their wisdom fails,
And the Truth-criers know not what they cry! 
Say, wherefore thou,
As under bondage of some bitter vow,
Warblest no word,
When all the rest are shouting to be heard? 
Why leave the fervid running just when Fame
’Gan whispering of thy name
Amongst the hard-pleased Judges of the Course? 
Parch’d is thy crystal-flowing source?
