First Line: When colour goes home into the eyes
Last Line: When children sleep, ere night.
Subject(s): Soldiers' Writings


When colour goes home into the eyes,
And lights that shine are shut again
With dancing girls and sweet birds' cries
Behind the gateways of the brain;
And that no-place which gave them birth, shall close
The rainbow and the rose: --

Still may Time hold some golden space
Where I'll unpack that scented store
Of song and flo
When children sleep, ere night.
