Alternate Author Name(s): Blunden, Edmund


THE starbeam lights, a touch, a breath,
On a rover in midnight mood,
In rapture with his houseless heath,
Warm furze-perfume, stern mountain-wreath
Of pines, and a water-music beneath,
And shades that lived before Stonehenge stood.

That far-spent patient messenger still
Woos him with sigh-soft hand,
Appeals through endlessness until
Response awakes with as deep a thrill
As when dawn's gale of splendour shrill
Storms with young force the general land.
