Marquis, D. (n.d.). They Had No Poet. Retrieved from


Excerpt: BY Tigris, or the streams of Ind, // Ere Colchis rose, or Babylon, // Forgotten empires dreamed and sinned, // Setting tall towns against the dawn, // Which, when the proud Sun smote upon, // Flashed fire for fire and pride for pride; // Their names were... Ask oblivion! . . // They had no poet, and they died. // Queens, dusk of hair and tawny-skinned, // That loll where fellow leopards fawn... // Their hearts are dust before the wind, // Their loves, that shook the world, are wan! // Passion is mighty... but, anon, // Strong Death has Romance for his bride; // Their legends... Ask oblivion!... // They had no poet, and they died.?
