“Sullen Moods” by Robert Graves

Sullen Moods

Love, do not count your labour lost

Though I turn sullen, grim, retired

Even at your side; my thought is crossed

With fancies by old longings fired.


And when I answer you, some days

Vaguely and wildly, do not fear

That my love walks forbidden ways,

Breaking the ties that hold it here
