CORNISH VILLAGES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: They are nothing but sifted
Last Line: Keeping them keen!
Subject(s): Cornwall, England; Villages

They are nothing but sifted
Sand in the folds
Of round hills lifted,
I think, from molds,

So smoothly they rise,
And so grittily sound
The names -- Pengrise,
Trelithick, Germound --

Of the flint-gray places
Beneath and between.
Hear the wind on their faces
Keeping them keen!
