Rupert Chawner Brooke (Руперт Брук)


Sonnet Reversed


Hand trembling towards hand; the amazing lights
Of heart and eye. They stood on supreme heights.

Ah, the delirious weeks of honeymoon!
 Soon they returned, and after strange adventures,
Settled at Balham by the end of June,
 Their money was in Can. Pacs. B. Debentures,
And in Antofagastas. Still he went
 Cityward daily; still she did abide
At home. And both were really quite content
 With work and social pleasures. Then they died.
They left three children (beside George, who drank);
 The eldest Jane, who married Mr. Bell,
William, the head-clerk in the County Bank,
 And Henry, a stock-broker, doing well.

Lulworth, 1 January 1911
