Index to poems

I have forgot much, Cynara! gone with the wind,
Flung roses, roses riotously with the throng,
Dancing, to put thy pale, lost lilies out of mind; But I was desolate and sick of an old passion,
Yea, all the time, because the dance was long;
I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.
        (Non Sum Qualis Eram Bonae sub Regno Cynarae, 13-18)
  1. A Last Word
  2. Non Sum Qualis Eram Bonae sub Regno Cynarae
  3. Vit{ae} Summa Brevis Spem nos Vetet Incohare Longam
