George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
123. Mistrust
 
 
YOU look at me with wan, bright eyes
  When in the deeper world I stray:
You fear some hidden ambush lies
  In wait to call me, “Come away.”
 
What if I see behind the veil        5
  Your starry self beseeching me,
Or at its stern command grow pale,
  “Let her be free, let her be free”?
