Alice Meynell (Элис Мейнелл)


The Rainy Summer


There's much afoot in heaven and earth this year;
    The winds hunt up the sun, hunt up the moon,
Trouble the dubious dawn, hasten the drear
    Height of a threatening noon.

No breath of boughs, no breath of leaves, of fronds,
    May linger or grow warm; the trees are loud;
The forest, rooted, tosses in her bonds,
    And strains against the cloud.

No scents may pause within the garden-fold;
    The rifled flowers are cold as ocean-shells;
Bees, humming in the storm, carry their cold
    Wild honey to cold cells.



Alice Meynell's other poems:
  1. In February
  2. West Wind in Winter
  3. To Sylvia
  4. A Poet's Wife
  5. The Newer Vainglory
