The New Judas
I see His Blood upon the Rose
The Stars sang in God’s Garden
I saw the Sun at Midnight
It is her Voice who dwells within the Emerald Wall
   and Sapphire House of Flame
A Wave of the Sea
White Waves on the Water
This Heritage to the Race of Kings
The Little Black Rose shall be Red at Last
Nomina Sunt Consequentia Rerum
My Lady has the Grace of Death
O Lovely Heart
I love you with my every Breath
O Bright! thy Stateliness and Grace
White Dove of the Wild Dark Eyes
My Soul is Sick with Longing
When all the Stars become a Memory
Your Pride
If I should need to tear aside
When I am Dead
The Claim that has the Canker on the Rose
Your Fault
There is no Deed I would not dare
New Love
Before the Glory of your Love
To Grace—On the morning of her christening,
   April 7th, 1916
