Goddess In The Wood The

by
 In a flowered dell the Lady Venus stood,
Amazed with sorrow.
Down the morning one Far golden horn in the gold of trees and sun Rang out; and held; and died.
.
.
.
She thought the wood Grew quieter.
Wing, and leaf, and pool of light Forgot to dance.
Dumb lay the unfalling stream; Life one eternal instant rose in dream Clear out of time, poised on a golden height.
.
.
.
Till a swift terror broke the abrupt hour.
The gold waves purled amidst the green above her; And a bird sang.
With one sharp-taken breath, By sunlit branches and unshaken flower, The immortal limbs flashed to the human lover, And the immortal eyes to look on death.
