Francis Ernley Walrond, The Gods of Africa and other Poems (London: Elkin Mathews, 1912): 73. 011650.de.89 British Library
1I walk in a garden of roses,
2 'Twixt lawn and shaven lawn,
3And I think of the wild free spaces,
4 And the rose of a breathless dawn.
5Gentle and sweet beside me
6 Goes the wife that bears my name,
7But I dream of a wild-eyed woman
8 And the sea that hides her shame.
