The Great War

from Poems, an electronic edition

After

"How fared you when you mortal were?

What did you see on my peopled star?"

" Oh well enough," I answered her,

"It went for me where mortals are!

"I saw blue flowers and the merlin's flight

And the rime on the wintry tree,

Blue doves I saw and summer light

On the wings of the cinnamon bee."
