About the Book
Excerpt from book: Three Fire Songs. I. O thistle-leafed flame, O vine that twineth round the world And killest with thy caress, Thy kiss crumbles all to air Except perchance a metal rare That makes the better part of man. For after the fierce fire of life is done, It sinks through the world undimmed, And love remains immortal. Three Fire Songs. In flaming gold thou goest, And crimson in thy hair, That slips its snood full wilfully To dance to every air. Ah well do I remind me, Thou slender maiden fair, Of scarlet lips that mock, Of flashing eyes that dare! For lo! my heart is ashes, The light that flickers there Creeps o'er my lost love's footsteps And dies in black despair. Three Fire Songs. III.

And lo! their chant throbs onward, A straight line midst the dancing shadows, "Through Death to Life eternal, Through Fire to God." Yet still the flame doth waver ? And flings sardonic glances O'er the priests pale faces, And spurning the tangle-cavern rock Leaps towards its purer sisters, The stars of Persian night. A Surf Song. Seething, receding, Whirlingly breathing, The cliffs in misty clouds wreathing, The mighty sea giant, Proudly defiant, In sinister strength reliant, Swirls fiercely sweeping Amid the rocks weeping, Now back to his lair swiftly creeping. Ah, happy the maiden Whose heart is not laden With woe for one on the ocean. The braver the soul, The dearer the toll To the hungry maw of the troll. Seething, receding, Whirlingly breathing, Forever his victims steal...
