Alan Seeger (Алан Сигер)


Lyonesse


In Lyonesse was beauty enough, men say:
Long Summer loaded the orchards to excess,
And fertile lowlands lengthening far away,
In Lyonesse.

Came a term to that land's old favoredness:
Past the sea-walls, crumbled in thundering spray,
Rolled the green waves, ravening, merciless.

Through bearded boughs immobile in cool decay,
Where sea-bloom covers corroding palaces,
The mermaid glides with a curious glance to-day,
In Lyonesse.

  3. Sonnet 16. WHO shall invoke her, who shall be her priest

  5. Sonnet 12. Down the strait vistas where a city street
