Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

She beckons forth – and strife and song have been

A Roman nose; a dimpling double-chin;
Dark eyes and shy that, ignorant of sin,

Raised, he settled stiffly sideways:
You could see his hurts were spinal

He's called The General from the brazen craft And dash with which he sneaks a bit of road And all its fares; challenged, or chafed, or chaffed,
Back-answers of the newest he'll explode;
He reins his horses with an air; he treats With sco...

The distances were still and green,

Where you were loitering with me
