Category: Love Sonnets


I Wear a crown invisible and clear,
    And go my lifted royal way apart
    Since you have crowned me softly in your heart
With love that is half ardent, half austere;
And as a queen disguised might pass anear
    The bitter crowd that barters in a mart,
    Veiling her pride while tears of pity start,
I hide my glory thru a jealous fear.
My crown shall stay a sweet and secret thing
    Kept pure with prayer at evensong and morn,
    And when you come to take it from my head,
    I shall not weep, nor will a word be said,
But I shall kneel before you, oh my king,
    And bind my brow forever with a thorn.
