Poems by Isaac Rosenberg


—! EARLIER POEMS HEART'S FIRST WORD. II. And all her soft dark hair Breathed for him like a prayer, And her white lost face Was prisoned to some far place. Love was not denied Love's ends would hide, And flower and fruit and tree Were under its sea. Yea, its abundance knelt Where the nerves felt The springs of feeling flow And made pain grow There seemed no root or sky, But a pent infinity Where apparitions dim Sculptured each whim In flame and wandering mist Of kisses to be kist. 149

— 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
