    Before Winter

    The wind is crying in the night,
    Like a lost child;
    The waves break wonderful and white
    And wild.
    The drenched sea-poppies swoon along
    The drenched sea-wall,
    And there's an end of summer and of song -
    An end of all.

    The fingers of the tortured boughs
    Gripped by the blast
    Clutch at the windows of your house
    Closed fast.
    And the lost child of love, despair,
    Cries in the night,
    Remembering how once those windows were
    Open and bright.
