THE MYSTERY OF CHOICE

BY ROBERT W. CHAMBERS

NEW YORK - 1897


DEDICATION

There is a maid, demure as she is wise,

With all of April in her winsome eyes,

And to my tales she listens pensively,

With slender fingers clasped about her knee,

Watching the sparrows on the balcony.

Shy eyes that, lifted up to me,

Free all my heart of vanity;

Clear eyes, that speak all silently,

Sweet as the silence of a nunnery—

Read, for I write my rede for you alone,

Here where the city's mighty monotone

Deepens the silence to a symphony—

Silence of Saints, and Seers, and Sorcery.

Arms and the Man! A noble theme, I ween!

Alas! I can not sing of these, Eileen—

Only of maids and men and meadow-grass,

Of sea and fields and woodlands, where I pass;

Nothing but these I know, Eileen, alas!

Clear eyes that, lifted up to me,

Free all my soul from vanity;

Gray eyes, that speak all wistfully—

Nothing but these I know, alas!

R. W. C.

April, 1896.
