MAN, that will not be beguiled"Man, that will not be beguiled" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in The Outlook (21 May 1904) and Mine and Thine (1904) as "Unrest", and in Poems (1916) Volume I.
Like a fond and happy child
From his toil or futile strife,
Feels within his bosom burning
All the deep, impassioned yearning
Woven in the woof of life.
And though far, with weary feet,
He may wander, Man shall meet
No content until he come—
Soon or late, his fate compelling—
To Love's domed and star-lit dwelling,
For he has no other home.
