So the Prince told him all there was to tell, And when that he had heard, the old man fell To meditating much, and shook his head As one exceeding ill at ease, and said, "I doubt the singing thou hast heard was no Voice of the waters billowing below, But rather of some evil spirit near, Who sought with singing to beguile thine ear, Spreading a snare to catch the soul of thee In meshes of entangling melody, Which taketh captive the weak minds of men. II No, no, ye need not answer any word! The weed Beareth not lilies, neither do apes breed Antelopes. For he had learning, and, besides the lore Won from his books, a better wisdom owned-- A knowledge of the stuff whence books are made, The human mind and all it feeds upon. Williams Wife, we think, was named Penelope and was a sister of John Watson.

Meanwhile upon the Prince's heart there brake Grief like a bitter wind, beneath whose breath Hope paled and sickened well-nigh unto death: For lo, those dumb and formless fears that came The Poems of William Watson V2 book his heart that morn, and, like a flame That flickers long and dimly ere it die, Tarried and would not pass, but fitfully Flickered and flared and paled and flared again,-- Lo, those mysterious messengers of pain, Dumb formless fears, were they not verified? And truly, from that moment she appeared More brightly beautiful, if Angelo Erred not, than she had looked for many a day. For evermore thereafter he did seem To see that royal maiden of his dream Unto her palace riding sovranly; And much he marvelled where that land might be That basking lay beneath her beauty's beams, Well knowing in his heart that suchlike dreams Come not in idleness but evermore Are Fate's veiled heralds that do fly before Their mighty master as he journeyeth, And sing strange songs of life and love and death. Yet, led by hollow ghost or beckoning elf Far from her homestead to the desert bourn, The vagrant soul returning to herself Wearily wise, must needs to him return. V Peace--peace--and rest! Erasure Traces reflects Watson's ability to implicate and extrapolate whole landscapes from the impermanence of nature.

Surely the heart that read her own heart clear Nature forgets not soon: 'tis we forget. We are decended from two branches of the Watson family, namely William and John. And heard at whiles, with hollow wandering tone, Far off, as by some aery huntsmen blown, Faint-echoing horns, among the mountains wound, Made all the live air tremulous with sound. And so he clambered down The cliff, and getting him again to horse Thither along the seabound held his course, And reached that city about sunset-tide The smoking of whose hearths he had espied. Watson's men were mounted militia armed with rifles and muskets, Butler's were cavalry armed with pistols and cutlasses.

Wherefore if thou be fain to see that land, There The Poems of William Watson V2 book only gold within thy hand: For gold, if that it jingle true and clear, Hath still a merry music for man's ear, And where is he that hateth sound of it?

And himself spake unto himself and said Heard only of the silence in his heart "Tarry thou here no longer, but depart Unto the land of the Great Mage; and seek The Mage; and whatsoever he shall speak, Give ear to that he saith, and reverent heed; And wheresoever he may bid thee speed, Thitherward thou shalt set thy face and go.

For me, to dreams resigned, there come and go, 'Twixt mountains draped and hooded night and morn, Elusive notes in wandering wafture borne,From undiscoverable lips that blow An immaterial horn;And spectral seem thy winter-boding trees, Thy ruinous bowers and drifted foliage wet- Past and Future in sad bridal met,O voice of everything that perishes, And soul of all regret!

One good thing Comes of another, like from like. But now the East was big with dawn, and he Drew nigh the city-gates and entered in, Ere yet the place remurmured with the din Of voices and the tread of human feet; And going up the void and silent street, All in the chill gleam of the new-lit air, A Thought found way into his soul, and there Abode and grew, and in brief The Poems of William Watson V2 book became Desire, and quickened to a quenchless flame: And holding converse with himself, he The Poems of William Watson V2 book, "Though in my heart the heart's desire be dead, And can no more these time-stilled pulses move; Though Death were lovelier to these eyes than Love Yet would these eyes behold, or ere I pass, The land that mirror'd lay as in a glass In the deep wells of dream.

Soon will the lordlier summits, here unseen, Gather the night about their nakedness. And by degrees the slowly-sliding days Gathered themselves together into years, And oftentimes his spirit welled in tears From dawn to darkness and from dark to dawn, By reason of the light of life withdrawn.

But going forth that morn, and with his feet Threading the murmurous maze of street and street, All strangely fell upon him everywhere The things he saw and heard of foul or fair.

Changeless, aloft, aloof, mute-moving, dim, In ancient fastnesses of twilight--him Have they not sent this day, the long-foretold, The long-foretold and much-desired, of whom 'Twas whilom written in the rolls of doom How in a dream he should this land behold, And hither come from worldwide wandering, Hither where all the folk should hail him king, Our king foredestined from his mother's womb?

But presently uprising to his feet From tarriance in that frontier-region dim, Exceeding wonderment laid hold on him; For even while from off his bed he rose, He heard a clinking as of metal, close Thereby, and could in no-wise understand: And lo the Iron Chain was in his hand!

And in those half-an-hundred winters,--ay, And in the summer's blaze, and blush of spring, And pomp of grave and grandiose autumntides,-- Full many a wind had beat upon his heart, Of grief and frustrate hope full many a wind, And rains full many, but no rains could damp The fuel that was stored within; which lay Unlighted, waiting for the tinder-touch, Until a chance spark fall'n from Lucia's eyes Kindled the fuel, and the fire was love: Not such as rises blown upon the wind, Goaded to flame by gusts of phantasy, But still, and needing no replenishment, Unquenchable, that would not be put out.

For now, when sudden ills befall the state, There will be none to warn or prophesy As he, but when calamities are nigh No man will know till they be come and we Be all undone together, woe is me! But, sir, you praise My singing, who have not yet heard me sing.

And when at last The emerald stone in thy own hands thou hast, Itself shall guide thee whither thou would'st go-- Ev'n to the land revealed of sleep, where no Grief comes to mar their music, neither sound Of sighing, while the golden years go round.

And heard at whiles, with hollow wandering tone, Far off, as by some aery huntsmen blown, Faint-echoing horns, among the mountains wound, Made all the live air tremulous with sound. Yet--but I know not On life's broad plain the ploughman's conquering share Upturned the fallow lands of truth anew, And o'er the formal garden's trim parterre The peasant's team a ruthless furrow drew.

My poorer self, which is my body, how Can I bestow, when 'tis not in mine own Possession, being his property forsooth, Who holds the ecclesiastic title-deed?

In elvish speech the Dreamer told his tale Of marvellous oceans swept by fateful wings. For, were the wondrous vision thou hast known Indeed Love's voice and Fate's which are the same Then, even as surely as the vision came, So surely shall it be fulfilled, if faith Abide in thee; but if thy spirit saith Treason of Love or Fate, and unbelief House in thy heart, then surely shall swift grief Find thee, and hope that should be as a breath Of song undying shall even die the death, And thou thyself the death-in-life shalt see, O Prince that wast, O wanderer that shalt be!Dec 04,  · The Father of the Forest & Other Poems () The Purple East, a series of sonnets on England's desertion of Armenia () (external scan) The Year of Shame () The Hope of the World and Other Poems () The Collected Poems of William Watson () Selected Poems () For England.
