    Sonnet to Liberty

    by Oscar Wilde

    Launch Reading Mode
    Not that I love thy children, whose dull eyes
    See nothing save their own unlovely woe,
    Whose minds know nothing, nothing care to know,--
    But that the roar of thy Democracies,
    Thy reigns of Terror, thy great Anarchies,
    Mirror my wildest passions like the sea
    And give my rage a brother--! Liberty!
    For this sake only do thy dissonant cries
    Delight my discreet soul, else might all kings
    By bloody knout or treacherous cannonades
    Rob nations of their rights inviolate
    And I remain unmoved--and yet, and yet,
    These Christs that die upon the barricades,
    God knows it I am with them, in some things.
