Invocation
 
Clara Shanafelt
 
 
O GLASS-BLOWER of time,
  Hast blown all shapes at thy fire?
Canst thou no lovelier bell,
  No clearer bubble, clear as delight, inflate me—
Worthy to hold such wine        5
  As was never yet trod from the grape,
Since the stars shed their light, since the moon
  Troubled the night with her beauty?
