Ada Cambridge (Cross) (Ада Кембридж (Кросс))


Craven-Heart


Those anguished voices in the air!
Oh, I could shriek and tear my hair
In rage, rebellion and despair.

But what is one, amid a throng
So vast and merciless and strong,
To make attempt to right the wrong?

What ear would hear me if I cried?
And who would rally to my side?
What could I do to stem the tide?

Though I should plunge in flood and flame,
And suffer every shame and blame,
The world would triumph all the same.

I am not called upon to pay.
So why join in the hopeless fray,
And waste my brief and precious day?



Ada Cambridge (Cross)'s other poems:
  1. The Future Verdict
  2. The Season
  3. Awake
  4. Honour
  5. The Magic Wand
