In him inexplicably mixd appeard Much to be lovd and hated sought and feard Opinion varying oer his hidden lot In praise or railing neer his name forgot His silence formd a theme for others prate They guessd--they gazd--they fain would know his fate What had he been what was he thus unknown Who walkd their world his lineage only known A hater of his kind yet some would say With them he could seem gay amidst the gay But ownd that smile if oft observd and near Wand in its mirth and witherd to a sneer That smile might reach his lip but passd not by None eer could trace its laughter to his eye Yet there was softness too in his regard At times a heart as not by nature hard But once perceivd his spirit seemd to chide Such weakness as unworthy of its pride And steeld itself as scorning to redeem One doubt from others half withheld esteem In self-inflicted penance of a breast Which tenderness might once have wrung from rest In vigilance of grief that would compel The soul to hate for having lovd too well XVIII There was in him a vital sign of all As if the worst had falln which could befall He stood a stranger in this breathing world An erring spirit from another hurld A thing of dark imaginings that shapd By choice the perils he by chance escapd But scapd in vain for in their memory yet His mind would half exult and half regret With more capacity for love than earth Bestows on most of mortal mould and birth His early dreams of good outstrippd the truth And troubled manhood followd baffled youth
