SABCL - Volume 5
I. Short Poems
Hark in the trees the low-voiced nightingale
Has slain the silence with a jubilant cry;
How clear in the hushed night, yet voluble
And various as sweet water wavering by,
That murmurs in a channel small
Beneath a low grey wall,
Then sings amid the fitful rye.
O sweet grave Siren of the night,
Thou feedest every leaf with solemn glee,
Lo, the night-winds sigh happier, being chid by thee.
