The Tamarisk Hedge

I know that there are slumbrous woods beyond On islands of white marges, where the tide Floods upward, blue as a kingfisher's wing,
And sails, like wishes of a reverie,

In The High Leaves Of A Walnut

On the very topmost boughs,
A boy that climbed the branching bole His cradled limbs would house
On the airy bed that rocked him Long, idle hours he'd lie Alone with white clouds sailing The warm blue ...

A far look in absorbed eyes, unaware Of what some gazer thrills to gather there;
A happy voice, singing to itself apart,
That pulses new blood through a listener's heart;
Old fortitude; and, 'mid an hour of dread,

Koya San

The stillness had the chastity of frost
I trod the fallen pallors of the moon

The Healers

In a vision of the night I saw them,
In the battles of the night
'Mid the roar and the reeling shadows of blood They were moving like light,
Light of the reason, guarded Tense within the will,

The Winds Of All The World

The winds of all the world bring agonies,
Day by day, hour by hour, into our ears;
Not only desolation, blood, and tears,
But cloud on cloud of suffocating lies

Invocation To Youth

ME then, as ever, like the wind at morning
O Youth, in the aged world
Freshness to feel the eternities around it,  Rain, stars and clouds, light and the sacred dew

Sonnet Ypres

She was a city of patience; of proud name,
Dimmed by neglecting Time; of beauty and loss;
Of acquiescence in the creeping moss
But on a sudden fierce destruction came Tigerishly pouncing: thunderbolt and flame Showered on her street...

Nothing Is Enough!

No, though our all be spent— Heart's extremest love,
Spirit's whole intent,
All that nerve can feel,
All that brain invent,— Still beyond appeal Will Divine Desire Yet more excellent Precious cost require Of this mortal stuff,— Neve...

Whither will the cloud its darkness carry Whose trembling drops about me spill

Or a shaped stone lying mossy where it tumbled
Sprawling bramble and saucy thistle mock What once was fire-lit floor and private charm,
