Queen Mary’s saying serves for me
  (When fortune’s malice
  Lost her Calais):

Graved inside of it ‘Italy.’”

Lest you should think he never could recapture
The first fine careless rapture.

To give sign we and they are his children, one family here.

All the heart and the soul and the senses forever in joy!

Loved all the more by earth’s male-lands,
Laid to their hearts instead.

And the spirit-small hand propping it.
          By the Fireside. xxiii.

  They are one and one, with a shadowy third;
One near one is too far.
          By the Fireside. xlvi.
7107
              Only I discern
Infinite passion, and the pain
Of finite hearts that yearn.
          Two in the Campagna. xii.
