Part Five: The Single Hound

LXXXI


IF pain for peace prepares,
Lo the “Augustan” years
Our feet await!
  
If Springs from Winter rise,
Can the Anemone’s        5
Be reckoned up?
  
If night stands first, then noon,
To gird us for the sun,
What gaze—
  
When, from a thousand skies,        10
On our developed eyes
Noons blaze!
