(28 February 1865 – 22 January 1945 / Milford Havens, Wales)

In Fountain Court


The fountain murmuring of sleep,
A drowsy tune;
The flickering green of leaves that keep
The light of June;
Peace, through a slumbering afternoon,
The peace of June.

A waiting ghost, in the blue sky,
The white curved moon;
June, hushed and breathless, waits, and I
Wait too, with June;
Come, through the lingering afternoon,
Soon, love, come soon.

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
