THE CHANCE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Mind and soul a halting brook
Last Line: To naked havock, hurl them all!
Alternate Author Name(s): Blunden, Edmund

MIND and soul a halting brook,
Famished with long burning days,
Meshed with many a bramble-hook
Where befouled the foam-fleece stays;

Nor must many days go by
Till but one or two dark holes
Cupping their gross liquor lie,
Where hot eyes lamp in dizzy shoals.

But hark! through time what impulse roars?
What fire and ice prepare to fall?
Come, though your torrents burst my shores
To naked havock, hurl them all!
