AN END TO THE WIND, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The month-long wind had ceased. Trees that / were weary
Last Line: And lift her cheek to springlike suns and dews.
Subject(s): Wind


THE month-long wind had ceased. Trees that were weary
Of striving rested their arms on a gentler air.
Their thin torn breasts were heaving at peace near me,
And at a little space like dark cliffs were.

In the still of morn the rabbits nibbled, the flapping
Of early butterfly-wings no quieter seemed
Than leaf bud anon on dead leaf rubbing and tapping,
Or the bird that pecked and gleamed where water gleamed.

Stillness was on the wood, on willow and bracken,
Quivering tassels and the pale nimbus of yews.
In a slow ease I felt the worn wood slacken,
And lift her cheek to springlike suns and dews.
