‘The crowd’

The Conversation of Graves
‘The world is ours’


The apple-trees are in flower.
Their blushed tips part and widen
into brightness by the hour,
whose fall is near as sudden.

Awhite-pink, a red that’s white,
that tumble into daylight,
opals out of deeping mines,
become one more of your signs;

you who now are the pattern
of all such things as are right,
and came so soon by this power
to be known by earth’s designs

that from May’s hail I took fright
lest you were torn by the stones.
