Seven Poems and a Fragment

    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    OLDEST PUPIL.

    (motioning the musicians to lower their trumpets)

    Not what it leaves behind it in the light

    But what it carries with it to the dark

    Exalts the soul; nor song nor trumpet-blast

    Can call up races from the worsening world

    To mend the wrong and mar the solitude

    Of the great shade we follow to the tomb.

    (Fedelm and the pupils go out carrying the litter. Some play

    a mournful music.)

    Amid the changeless clamour of the curlew.
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    And there he can sleep on, not noticing

    Although the world be changed from worse to worse,
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    (They go towards the king holding out their halters)

    We are impatient men,

    So gather up the halters in your hands.
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    The ancient right is gone, the new remains

    And that is death.
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    YOUNGEST PUPIL.

    Dead faces laugh!
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    O look upon the moon that’s standing there
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    The man that dies has the chief part in the story,

    And I will mock and mock and mock that image yonder

    That evil picture in the sky—no, no—

    I have all my strength again, I will outface it.
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    Are but loose thread, are but loose thread;
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    THE GIRL.

    God loves us for our worth;

    But what care I that long for a man’s love.

    THE FOOL BY THE ROADSIDE.
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    For they at least have all men’s reverence

    And have no need of cruelty to keep

    What no deception won.
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    And would through hatred of the bays

    Bring that to nought.
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    the new faces play what tricks they will

    In the old rooms; night can outbalance day,
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    Neither Caltapa tree nor scented lime
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    Come let us mock at the great

    That had such burdens on the mind

    And toiled so hard and late
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    O but we dreamed to mend

    Whatever mischief seemed

    To afflict mankind, but now

    That winds of winter blow
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    That image can bring wildness, bring a rage

    To end all things, to end

    What my laborious life imagined, even

    The half imagined, the half written page;
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    The swan has leaped into the desolate heaven:
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    Those winds that clamour of approaching night.
    Menna Abu Zahraje citiralaпре 3 месеца
    Whether to play or to ride
