Poems by Isaac Rosenberg


— POEMS BY ISAAC ROSENBERG LADY, YOU ARE MY GOD Lady, you are my God Lady, you are my Heaven. If I am your God Labour for your Heaven. Lady, you are my God, And shall not love win Heaven ? If love made me God Deeds must win my Heaven. If my love made you God, What more can I for Heaven ? 150

EARLIER POEMS IF YOU ARE FIRE If you are fire and I am fire, Who blows the flame apart So that desire eludes desire Around one central heart ? A single root and separate bough, And what blind hands between That make our longing's mutual glow As if it had not been ? 151
