Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967).  Picture-Show.  1920.

21. Wraiths


THEY know not the green leaves; 
In whose earth-haunting dream 
Dimly the forest heaves, 
And voiceless goes the stream. 
  Strangely they seek a place         5
  In love’s night-memoried hall; 
  Peering from face to face, 
  Until some heart shall call 
  And keep them, for a breath, 
  Half-mortal ... (Hark to the rain!)...  10
  They are dead ... (O hear how death 
  Gropes on the shutter’d pane!)
