Poem by Arthur Hugh Clough


SO SPAKE the voice: and as with a single life
Instinct, the whole mass, fierce, irretainable,
        Down on that unsuspecting host swept;
        Down, with the fury of winds, that all night
Upbrimming, sapping slowly the dyke, at dawn
Fall through the breach oer holmstead and harvest; and
        Heard roll a deluge: while the milkmaid
        Trips i the dew, and remissly guiding
Morns first uneven furrow, the farmers boy
Dreams out his dream; so, over the multitude
        Safe-tented, uncontrolled and uncon-
        trollably sped the Avengers fury.
