2 Girl and Landscape

2 Girl and Landscape

This blonde girl is beautiful enough;
The body tall, the bright head arrogant;
She looks to me like some wild bird
Strayed or snared out of its true element.

The eyes are cold as mist in a stone valley;
The brilliant hands are almost predatory;
But the harshness of the mouth is beautiful
As a hawk on some sea-torm promontory.

Some sea-torn promontory where the wind
Lifts the white spray, and sea-gulls scream
Heard by wild ears; nearby, a wooded gorge
Rocked with the foaming thunder of a stream
