|Althea Gyles (right) with Irish revolutionist Constance Markiewicz|
|Gyles' cover design for Yeats' The Secret Rose (1897)|
The colour gladdens all your heart;
You call it Heaven, dear, but I -
Now Hope and I are far apart -
Call it the sky.
I know that Nature's tears have wet
The world with sympathy; but you,
Who know not any sorrow yet,
Call it the dew.
|"Lilith" by Althea Gyles, from 'The Dome' vol.I, Oct.-Dec. 1898|
