Loneliness? when I think of loneliness
I think the small towers of the crusaders
Built on the treeless mountains of Palestine,
Watch-towers held by half-a-dozen men,
Who were brought up in hamlets beside streams
With woods and meadows near them.
Loneliness? The night coming on,
The night that covers danger,
And hungry stars
Peering from heaven,
And the wind sweeping from ridge to stony ridge,
And a horse neighing with a shiver in it,
And some one tower with half-a-dozen men
Left isolated in a harsh inimical land.
