I Who Have Known Your Beauty
By Willard Wattles
I WHO have known your beauty
  And bent beneath your spell,
Harry the hills of booty
  Unbroken as Ishmael.
The white feet of your going        5
  Turn and turn again
In a little round of the knowing
  Bruised heart of pain.
But the cloud of your hair falling,
  And the glory of your white hands,        10
Are mine past the bane’s recalling
  In the inviolable lands.
