Excerpt from The Qvest of Heracles and Other Poems

For he was confident he should succeed, Albeit he could not tell the how, or why; As men are sure that from the planted seed The grain will grow, yet cannot justify Their faith with explanation. For he knew Not even where the enchanted grove might lie Except that from the westward breezes blew That bore to men the garden-scent and Spice Which filled their hearts with aspirations new Recalling memories of paradise And Of the golden age. So toward the west He journeyed out Of Thebes, his laughing eyes Set ever on this new labourious. Quest Which promised dangers to be dared, and fame Enough to still the longing Of his breast. He journeyed onward swiftly till he came Unto the sea, beyond whose utmost shore, Somewhere afar, and toward the sunset flame, The garden lay, and there the tree which bore The golden fruit of the Hesperides. Upon the sand a hundred boats or more Were beached, and from among them Heracles Chose him the one that fittest seemed to bear His mighty strength across the billowing seas.
