  • Poem of the Day: Helen
    All Greece hates   
    the still eyes in the white face,   
    the lustre as of olives   
    where she stands,   
    and the white hands.   

    All Greece reviles   
    the wan face when she smiles,   
    hating it deeper still   
    when it grows wan and white,   
    remembering past enchantments   
    and past ills.   

    Greece sees unmoved,   
    God's daughter, born of love,   
    the beauty of cool feet   
    and slenderest knees,   
    could love indeed the maid,   
    only if she were laid,   
    white ash amid funereal cypresses.
