Two Loves by Lord Alfred Douglas

I once had a dream
I stood upon
a hill
my feet wasting
away
garden-will
buds
and blossoms
pools
black unruffled
lillies
and a few crocuses
violations
fritillaries

scarce
to be seen
green netting
peryenche
winking
flower-streaming
drunken
transition

one brief
moment
sunset-strewn
nurturation
water scent
dew coupled
mars
glorious luminous
Heaven abrupt
velvet-moss
stone walls
descript mazing
strange
sweet
fair
marvelled
lo!

bunch of bursting
grapes
real poem
content
yes don’t
you think
in
this pathless
mountain
of red frost
wine spilling
brown chalcedony

and then he came to me
with lips uncurled
kissing
me
grapes
to eat
saying sweet
friend
i will be your shadow
to the world
let us walk on golden
paths
string-held
voice
tune
fluting
comrade
we walked
through pallied lillies
poppies
our hands
were clenched tightly
our devises
were the greatest
of snakes
I fell fiery
weep
why pleasant
realms
do foresake
me
Shamefully
hearts
of boy and girl
flaming
love
dares
not speak they name
