SPEAK OF THE NORTH, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Speak of the north! A lonely moor
Last Line: Silently lights the unclouded skies.
Alternate Author Name(s): Bell, Currer
Subject(s): Nature

SPEAK of the North! A lonely moor
Silent and dark and trackless swells,
The waves of some wild streamlet pour
Hurriedly through its ferny dells.

Profoundly still the twilight air,
Lifeless the landscape; so we deem,
Till like a phantom gliding near
A stag bends down to drink the stream.

And far away a mountain zone,
A cold, white waste of snow-drifts lies,
And one star, large and soft and lone,
Silently lights the unclouded skies.
