No lay of love in summer on the wing,

Overview

Excerpt from Mary Magdalene: And Other Poems

My song, come, let us sing
No lay of love in summer on the wing,
But love's great aspiration and the praise
Of love surviving loss and evil days.

My song, be sweet and brief
Hymning the hope that will not die of grief,
Breathing a word of comfort in the ear,
How death at length transcendeth woe and fear.

Be pitiful, my song,
Telling of human wreck and human wrong,
If man to man at the last fail to respond,
Better for them, for us, no life beyond.

And oh my song, take part
In Truth's immortal victory over art,
For thee no ornate phrase or form, content
To see thy garment neither soiled nor rent.

What of the clamouring folk
Who seek a great to-do o'er each word spoke?
My song, their scorn will never win us ruth
If we should strike one untouched chord of truth.
