The Fallen
By Loureine Aber
From “Laurel Wreaths”

WHEREVER you are,
O strong-throated,
The sun was on your swords,
The light of all time, and the still wanderings of high Romance through forest tracks.        5
Flame touched you, flame and wonder,
The stars for a moment singing in your lips,
The sea for an instant washing the doors of your souls,….
Wherever you are,
O fallen,        10
Timid though, or gruff….
Prometheus welded your limbs
And set them aflame.
Now we hear of you dying,
And do not understand.        15
