Subject(s): Great Britain - History; English History


Dim watered vale whose clear streams seek the sea,
At gray of dawn strange gods walked in the wood
Before Saint Joseph's wattled chapel stood
Woven with green wands from some Druid tree;
The fragrance of a lost simplicity
Clings to the tomb of the white brotherhood
That wandered through wild lands, yet found it good
To linger here apart with Calvary.

The feet of frost have touched you, now you wear
Autumn's rich ruined splendor and soft haze --
The memory of immemorial fires;
But as you dream alone, the sea-winds bear
A whispered promise from wide starry ways
Of new songs that shall fill those fallen choirs.
