The Warrior's Barrow - Scene 4

SCENE IV

BLANKA.
(Alone.)
He is gone! Ah, perfect stillness
Rules upon the barren strand.
Perfect stillness, grave-like stillness
Rules my heart with heavy hand.
Came he then to vanish only
Through the mist, a ray of light?
Soon he flies, a sea-gull lonely,
Far away into the night!
What is left me of this lover?
But a flower in the dark:
In my loneliness to hover
Like a petrel round his bark!

(The war trumpet of the Vikings is heard from the left.)

BLANKA.
Ah! What was that! A trumpet from the wood!

SCENE III(GANDALF. BLANKA with oak leaves in her hair and abasket of flowers enters from the left.)BLANKA. (Seated at the left busily weaving a flower wreath.)Fountains may murmur in the sunny vales,Resplendent billows roll beneath the shore;Nor fountain's murmur, nor the billow's songHas half the magic of those flowers there,That stand in clusters round the barrow's edgeAnd nod at one another lovingly;They draw me hither during night and day,--And it is here I long to come and dream.The wreath is done. The hero's monument,So hard and cold, shall under it be hid.Yes, it is beautiful!(Pointing to the mound.)BLANKA.
