FATE DEFIED

AS it
Were tissue of silver
I’ll wear, O fate, thy grey,
And go mistily radiant, clad
Like the moon.        5
 
NIGHT WINDS

THE OLD
Old winds that blew
When chaos was, what do
They tell the clattered trees that I
Should weep?        10
 
THE WARNING

JUST now,
Out of the strange
Still dusk … as strange, as still …
A white moth flew … Why am I grown
So cold?        15
