Subject(s): Gardens & Gardening; Lightning; Storms; Lightning Rods


Out of the storm that muffles shining night
Flash piteous roses ghastly-sweet
And lilies far too white:
There is a pang of green,
A terror of familiarity;
I see a dripping swirl of petalled things
That I once tended happily,
And paths I surely walked in that other life,—
Day.

My pale ghost-garden gibbers at me—
Beckons horribly—
And vanishes!
