Dumb

 Gabriel whispered in mine ear
His archangelic poesie.
How can I write? I only hear The sobbing murmur of the sea.
Raphael breathed and bade me pass His rapt evangel to mankind; I cannot even match, alas! The ululation of the wind.
The gross grey gods like gargoyles spit On every poet's holy head; No mustard-seed of truth or wit In those curst furrows, quick or dead! A tithe of what I know would cleanse The leprosy of earth; and I - My limits are like other men's.
I must live dumb, and dumb must die!
