Translations from the Book of Indian Love 

Laurence Hope [Adela Florence Cory "Violet" Nicolson] 

Dedication to Malcolm Nicolson 

I, who of lighter love wrote many a verse,
Made public never words inspired by thee,
Lest strangers' lips should carelessly rehearse
Things that were sacred and too dear to me. 

Thy soul was noble; through these fifteen years
Mine eyes familiar, found no fleck nor flaw,
Stern to thyself, thy comrades' faults and fears
Proved generously thine only law. 

Small joy was I to thee; before we met
Sorrow had left thee all too sad to save.
