Michael Field

[i. e. Katherine Harris Bradley u. Edith Emma Cooper]





   A GIRL,
Her soul a deep-wave pearl
Dim, lucent of all lovely mysteries;
   A face flowered for heart's ease,
   A brow's grace soft as seas
   Seen through faint forest-trees:
   A mouth, the lips apart,
Like aspen-leaflets trembling in the breeze
   From her tempestuous heart.
   Such: and our souls so knit,
   I leave a page half-writ –
          The work begun
   Will be to heaven's conception done,
          If she come to it.






Michael Field: Underneath the Bough.
