DANAIDES: THE MARRIAGE OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The holy heaven longs to thrust the earth
Last Line: Perfect their fruits. Joint cause of all am I.


THE holy Heaven longs to thrust the Earth,
And Earth, for love, would make her marriage-bed.
Rain-showers falling from the bridegroom Heaven
Impregnate Earth, who brings to birth for men
Grass for the flocks and the Earth-mother's corn.
And from the shining stream of rain the trees
Perfect their fruits. Joint cause of all am I.
