THE ISLANDS: 3, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: What can love of land give to me
Last Line: And fall back.
Alternate Author Name(s): H. D.; Aldington, Richard, Mrs.
Subject(s): Bible; Greece; Islands; Property; Greeks; Possessions

What can love of land give to me
that you have not,
what can love of strife break in me
that you have not?

Though Sparta enter Athens,
salt, rising to wreak terror
Thebes wrack Sparta,
each changes as water,
and fall back.
