AUBREY THOMAS DE VERE
Irish poet and prose writer
(1814 - 1902)

The warrior for the True, the Right,
  Fights in Love's name;
    The love that lures thee from that fight
      Lures thee to shame:
        That love which lifts the heart, yet leaves
          The spirit free,--
            That love, or none, is fit for one
              Man-shaped like thee.
      - Miscellaneous Poems--Song [Love]

Softly, O midnight hours!
  Move softly o'er the bowers
    Where lies in happy sleep a girl so fair:
      For ye have power, men say,
        Our hearts in sleep to sway
          And cage cold fancies in a moonlight snare.
      - Song--Softly, O Midnight Hours [Sleep]

When I was young, I said to Sorrow,
  "Come and I will play with thee!"
    He is near me now all day,
      And at night returns to say,
        "I will come again to-morrow--
          I will come and stay with thee."
      - Song--When I was Young I said to Sorrow
        [Sorrow]
