AVOWAL, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Forest and plain are gone
Last Line: As nights bereft of wind.
Alternate Author Name(s): Villiers De L'isle-adam, Auguste De
Subject(s): Nature; Weariness; Fatigue

FOREST and plain are gone,
And April's ancient spell ...
Give me thy lips; thereon
The woodland wind shall swell.

Lost is the sullen stir
Of Ocean's endless pain ...
Speak, and my soul shall hear
His surging tides again.

In royal woe I weep,
And dream of suns gone blind ...
O! bosom hide me deep
As nights bereft of wind.
