  • I came from nothing, but from where
    Come these undying thoughts I bear?
    • Opening words to 'The Modern Poet' from Poems (John Lane, 1903).
  • She walks—the lady of my delight—
    A shepherdess of sheep.
    Her flocks are thoughts. She keeps them white;
    She keeps them from the steep
