Robin-on-branch by D-A-Skelly

WINTER

Clouded with snow
The cold winds blow,
And shrill on leafless bough
The Robin with its burning breast
Along sings now.

The rayless sun,
Day's journey done,
Sheds its last ebbing light
On fields in leagues of beauty spread
Unearthly white.

Thick draws the dark,
And spark by spark,
The frost-fires kindle, and soon
Over the sea of frozen foam
Floats the white moon.

Walter de la Mare (April 25, 1873 - June 22, 1956}.

FRUTTA di MARE

I am a sea-shell flung
Up from the ancient sea;
Now I lie here, among
Roots of a tamarisk tree;
No one listens to me.

I sing to myself all day
In a husky voice, quite low,
Things the great fishes say
And you most need to know;
All night I sing just so.

But lift me from the ground,
And harken at my rim
Only your sorrows sound
Amazed, perplexed and dim
Comes coiling to the brim.

From what the wise whales ponder
Awakening out from sleep,
The key to all your wonder,
The answers of the deep,
These to myself I keep.

Geoffrey Scott (11 June 1884 – 14 August 1929)
