Vol. V. Browning to Rupert Brooke
 
The End of It (from New Poems)
By Francis Thompson (1859–1907)
 
(1897)

SHE did not love to love; but hated him
For making her to love, and so her whim
From passion taught misprision to begin;
And all this sin
Was because love to cast out had no skill        5
Self, which was regent still.
Her own self-will made void her own self’s will.
