THE CHARMING OF THE EAST WIND, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Late in the month a rough east wind had sway
Last Line: And down he sank, a captive to the spring!
Subject(s): East Wind; Landscape


Late in the month a rough east wind had sway,
The old trees thundered, and the dust was blown;
But other powers possessed the night and day,
And soon he found he could not hold his own;
The merry ruddock whistled at his heart,
And strenuous blackbirds pierced his flanks with song,
Pert sparrows wrangled o'er his every part,
And thro' him shot the larks on pinions strong:
Anon a sunbeam broke across the plain,
And the wild bee sent forth on booming wing --
Whereat he feeble waxed, but rose again
With aimless rage, and idle blustering;
The south wind touched him with a drift of rain,
And down he sank, a captive to the spring!
