George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
50. Heroic Love
 
 
WHEN our glowing dreams were dead,
Ruined our heroic piles,
Something in your dark eyes said:
“Think no more of love or smiles.”
 
Something in me still would say,        5
“Though our dreamland palace goes,
I have seen how in decay
Still the wild rose clings and blows.”
 
But your dark eyes willed it thus:
“Build our lofty dream again:        10
Let our palace rise o’er us:
Love can never be till then.”
