As an egg, when broken, never
Can be mended, but must ever
Be the same crushed egg for ever—
So shall this dark heart of mine!

SourcedEdit

  • Many mellow Cydonian suckets
    Sweet apples, anthosmial, divine,
    From the ruby-rimmed beryline buckets
    Star-gemmed, lily-shaped, hyaline;
    Like the sweet golden goblet found growing
    On the wild emerald cucumber-tree,
    Rich, brilliant, like chrysophrase glowing
    Was my beautiful Rosalie Lee.
    • Rosalie Lee.
  • In the music of the morns
    Blown through the Conchimarian horns,
    Down the dark vistas of the reboantic Norns,
    To the Genius of Eternity
    Crying, “Come to me! Come to me!”
    • The Poet's Vacation.
  • On the beryl-rimmed rebecs of Ruby
    Brought fresh from the hyaline streams,
    She played on the banks of the Yuba
    Such songs as she heard in her dreams.
    • Lily Adair.
  • As an egg, when broken, never
    Can be mended, but must ever
    Be the same crushed egg for ever—
    So shall this dark heart of mine!
    • To Allegra Florence in Heaven.
  • As the diamond is the crystalline Revelator of the achromatic white light of Heaven, so is a perfect poem the crystalline revelation of the Divine Idea.
    • Preface to Eonchs of Ruby.
