ONE that is ever kind said yesterday:

"Your well-beloved's hair has threads of grey,

And little shadows come about her eyes;

Time can but make it easier to be wise

Though now it seems impossible, and so

All that you need is patience."

Heart cries, "No,

I have not a crumb of comfort, not a grain.

Time can but make her beauty over again:

Because of that great nobleness of hers

The fire that stirs about her, when she stirs,

Burns but more clearly.O she had not these ways

When all the wild Summer was in her gaze."

Heart! O heart! if she'd but turn her head,

You'd know the folly of being comforted.

.: Wild summer in her gaze.. :.

I think this is an amazing poem that doesn't get much recognition- read it aloud and really think about it... This poem is an eloquent argument against the proposed fact that people/women become less beautiful as they age:

"The fire that stirs about her, when she stirs,
Burns but more clearly. O she had not these ways
When all the wild Summer was in her gaze."

I love the enjambment between 'these ways / When all the..., which to me suggests a great outpouring of his emotions- his anger is so great by this point of the argument that his words are slipping out uncjecked, unrestrained.

I believe this poem is a sonnet but obviously an unusually formed one.
