- WHITE, like a spectre seen when night is old
- Yet stained with hues of many a tear and smart,
- Cornelian, blood-stone, matched in callous art:
- Aflame, like passion, like dominion cold,
- Bed of imperial consorts whom none part
- For ever (domed with glory, heart to heart)
- Still whispering to the ages, 'Love is bold
- And seeks the height, though rooted in the mould':
- Touched, when the dawn floats in an opal mist
- By fainter blush than opening roses own;
- Calm in the evening's lucent amethyst;
- Pearl-crowned, when midnight airs aside have blown
- The clouds that rising moonlight faintly kissed;
- -- An aspiration fixed, a sigh made stone.
- H.G. Keene
