A Lincolnshire Maiden

Long the eastern beaches,
Where brown the seaweed grows,
And over broad salt meadows,
The green tide ebbs and flows.

Above the low-roofed houses,
Two ancient towers rise,
And stand like giant druids,
Against the wind-swept skies.

Through mist or rain or sunshine,
Their prows festooned with foam,
The fishing-boats go outward
Or laden, turn them home.

She watches by the window,
And tearless are her eyes;
She sees not church or tower,
Or sea or wind-swept skies.

She sees not tide or tempest,
Or sun or mist or rain;
Afar her spirit wanders
Upon the Belgian plain.

Where over shell-scarred cities
The mad, red tempest raves,
And poplars sigh and shudder
Above unnumbered graves.

(The end)
Frank Oliver Call's poem: Lincolnshire Maiden

The Chambly Rapid The Chambly Rapid

The Chambly Rapid
There's a spirit in the rapid, calling, calling through the night, There's a gleam upon the water, burning pale and burning bright. Woe to him who hears the calling! Woe to him who sees the light! My son and I had left St. Jean, Our paddles dipping in the blue, And many miles to north had gone Along the silent Richelieu; The night came down, we thought of rest; A threatening cloud hung in the west.

In A Belgian Garden In A Belgian Garden

In A Belgian Garden
Once in a Belgian garden, (Ah, many months ago!) I saw like pale Madonnas The tall white lilies blow. Great poplars swayed and trembled Afar against the sky, And green with flags and rushes The river wandered by. Amid the waving wheatfields Glowed poppies blazing red, And showering strange wild music A lark rose overhead. * * * * *
