Robert Laurence Binyon (Роберт Лоренс Биньон)


* * *


In the shadow of a broken house,
Down a deserted street,
Propt walls, cold hearths, and phantom stairs,
And the silence of dead feet —
Locked wildly in one another's arms
I saw two lovers meet.

And over that hearthless house aghast
Rose from the mind's abyss
Lost stars and ruined, peering moons,
Worlds overshadowing this, —
Time's stony palace crumbled down
Before that instant kiss. 



Robert Laurence Binyon's other poems:
  1. No More Now with Jealous Complaining
  2. The Fourth of August
  3. Edith Cavell
  4. A Child in Nature, as a Child in Years
  5. In the High Leaves of a Walnut
