CYCLAMENS, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: They are terribly white
Last Line: Of this handful of cyclamen.
Alternate Author Name(s): Field, Michael (with Edith Emma Cooper)

They are terribly white:
There is snow on the ground,
And a moon on the snow at night;
The sky is cut by the winter light;
Yet I, who have all these things in ken,
Am struck to the heart by the chiselled white
Of this handful of cyclamen.
