Tennyson’s Suppressed Poems



Alfred Tennyson

SAINTED Juliet! dearest name!
        If to love be life alone,
            Divinest Juliet,
        I love thee, and live; and yet
Love unreturned is like the fragrant flame
        Folding the slaughter of the sacrifice
        Offered to Gods upon an altarthrone;
My heart is lighted at thine eyes,
Changed into fire, and blown about with sighs.
