66. The Dying Swan
 
O SILVER-THROATED Swan 
Struck, struck! A golden dart 
Clean through thy breast has gone 
Home to thy heart. 
Thrill, thrill, O silver throat!         5
O silver trumpet, pour 
Love for defiance back 
On him who smote! 
And brim, brim o'er 
With love; and ruby-dye thy track  10
Down thy last living reach 
Of river, sail the golden light— 
Enter the sun's heart—even teach 
O wondrous-gifted Pain, teach Thou 
The God of love, let him learn how!  15
