Sir William Watson. (1858–1935)
 
 
1
    Hate and mistrust are the children of blindness—
          England to Ireland.
2
    Best they honor thee
Who honor in thee only what is best.
          The true Patriotism.
3
    And though circuitous and obscure
The feet of Nemesis how sure!
          Europe at the Play.
4
    Braying of arrogant brass, whimper of querulous reeds.
          Hymn to the Sea. Part iii. 8.
5
    Deemest thou labor
Only is earnest?
Grave is all beauty,
  Solemn is joy.
          England my Mother. Part iv.
6
    Empires dissolve and peoples disappear,
Song passes not away.
          Lacrymae Musarum.
7
    In this world with starry dome,
  Floored with gemlike plains and seas,
Shall I never feel at home,
  Never wholly be at ease?
          World-Strangeness.
8
    On from room to room I stray,
  Yet mine Host can ne’er espy,
And I know not to this day,
  Whether guest or captive I.
          World-Strangeness.
