Alice Meynell (Элис Мейнелл)

In Manchester Square

            (In Memoriam T.H.)

The paralytic man has dropped in death
        The crossing-sweeper's brush to which he clung,
One-handed, twisted, dwarfed, scanted of breath,
        Although his hair was young.

I saw this year the winter vines of France,
        Dwarfed, twisted, goblins in the frosty drouth—
Gnarled, crippled, blackened little stems askance
        On long hills to the South.

Great green and golden hands of leaves ere long
        Shall proffer clusters in that vineyard wide.
And O his might, his sweet, his wine, his song,
        His stature, since he died!

Alice Meynell's other poems:
  1. The Roaring Frost
  2. To O——, of Her Dark Eyes
  3. Free Will
  4. Singers to Come
  5. To Sylvia
