Francis Thompson (Фрэнсис Томпсон)


Scala Jacobi Portaque Eburnea


Her soul from earth to Heaven lies,
Like the ladder of the vision,
      Whereon go
      To and fro,
In ascension and demission,
Star-flecked feet of Paradise.

Now she is drawn up from me,
All my angels, wet-eyed, tristful,
      Gaze from great
      Heaven’s gate
Like pent children, very wistful,
That below a playmate see.

Dream-dispensing face of hers!
Ivory port which loosed upon me
      Wings, I wist,
      Whose amethyst
Trepidations have forgone me,—
Hesper’s filmy traffickers!

  3. Epilogue to the Poet's Sitter
  4. The Making of Viola
  5. To My Godchild, Francis M.W.M.
