Heliodore
By Andrew Lang (1844–1912)
 
POUR wine, and cry, again, again, again,
        To Heliodore!
And mingle the sweet word ye call in vain
        With that ye pour:
And bring to me her wreath of yesterday        5
        That ’s dark with myrrh;
Hesternae Rosae, ah, my friends, but they
        Remember her.
Lo! the kind roses, loved of lovers, weep,
        As who repine;        10
For if on any breast they see her sleep,
        It is not mine.
