The Desert
By Alfred Hitch
 
STRICKEN by the hand of Fate,
All things, motionless, await
The rain that never comes; no hope
In cloudless skies. Far westward slope
Low bastioned hills without a tree,        5
Dead-guarding some dread mystery.
 
The land lies far in weary miles,
Under the sun, across the sands.
An aromatic scent beguiles—
Of sage, sole plant in arid lands.        10
From desert floors, wind-swept, arise
Dust clouds like smoke unto the skies.
