Collected Poems



Though I have lost the light
I count it not a woe,
for through my starless night
flock dreams of long ago,

brave dreams of old delight,
lost, lovely things aglow,
that never shone so bright
in days I used to know.

I see the blaze of noon
upon the world once more
and sunlit flowers all strewn
upon her meadow-floor.

I see the earth again
wake from her slumbering;
and silver scars of rain
upon the skies of spring.

The colours of the earth
flow through my darkened brain,
and things of little worth
are now unbounded gain.

page 207

Such things I did not prize
when soul, not eye, was blind,
but now I have not eyes
they blossom in the mind.
