Elinor Wylie (Элинор Уайли)

Poor Earth

It is not heaven: bitter seed 
Leavens its entrails with despair 
It is a star where dragons breed: 
Devils have a footing there.

The sky has bent it out of shape; 
The sun has strapped it to his wheel; 
Its course is crooked to escape 
Traps and gins of stone and steel.

It balances on air, and spins 
Snared by strong transparent space; 
I forgive it all its sins; 
I kiss the scars upon its face.

Elinor Wylie's other poems:
  1. Death and the Maiden
  2. Little Elegy
  3. Primavera in the North
  4. Quarrel
  5. The Church-Bell
