First Line: The thrush sings the meditative high in the bare oak-boughs
Last Line: Head bent forward, and asleep—with her hand in his dark short hair.
Subject(s): Love; Romance


THE thrush sings meditative high in the bare oak-boughs—while the
still April morning just drops with faint rain, and the honeysuckle climbs
snakelike with green wings among the underwood;
The voice of the ploughman sounds across the valley, and the cackle of the
farmyard mingles with the rumble of a distant train on its way to the great
city:

Where, in her boudoir, by the light of the dying fire—the shutters yet
closed and the candles guttered and gone out—she lies, the Paris beauty,
naked on her low tiger-skin couch;
And he, her lover, naked too, on the floor beside her has slipped—his
head bent forward, and asleep—with her hand in his dark short hair.
