First Line: That shower-silvery grass where the damson-flower drifted
Last Line: On the dust-track unsignatured mile after mile.
Alternate Author Name(s): Blunden, Edmund


THAT shower-silvery grass where the damson-flower drifted
And the small frog leapt clear as I came,
That songburst when out of the thunder-cloud lifted
The sun sent his paean of flame,
Those rustlings of wrens in the ivy -- dear God,
I saw every leaf of the lane I then trod!

But now the grey age passes by my faint senses
And charm lies wing-shattered or dead;
No orchard-bough blossoms above these steel fences;
The clay-coloured clouds overhead
Neither speak in proud thunder, nor let the sun smile
On the dust-track unsignatured mile after mile.
