By the Statue of King Charles at Charing Cross (1895)

  • Alone he rides, alone,
    The fair and fatal king:
    Dark night is all his own,
    That strange and solemn thing.
  • Vanquished in life, his death
    By beauty made amends:
    The passing of his breath
    Won his defeated ends.

The Dark Angel (1895)

  • Because of thee, the land of dreams
    Becomes a gathering place of fears:
    Until tormented slumber seems
    One vehemence of useless tears.
