    Half-Ballad of Waterval

    (Non-commissioned Officers in Charge of Prisoners)

    When by the labor of my 'ands
    I've 'elped to pack a transport tight
    With prisoners for foreign lands,
    I ain't transported with delight.
    I know it's only just an' right,
    But yet it somehow sickens me,
    For I 'ave learned at Waterval
    The meanin' of captivity.

    Be'ind the pegged barb-wire strands,
    Beneath the tall electric light,
    We used to walk in bare-'ead bands,
    Explainin' 'ow we lost our fight;
    An' that is what they'll do to-night
    Upon the steamer out at sea,
    If I 'ave learned at Waterval
    The meanin' of captivity.

    They'll never know the shame that brands--
    Black shame no livin' down makes white--
    The mockin' from the sentry-stands,
    The women's laugh, the gaoler's spite.
    We are too bloomin'-much polite,
    But that is 'ow I'd 'ave us be . . .
    Since I 'ave learned at Waterval
    The meanin' of captivity.

    They'll get those draggin' days all right,
    Spent as a foreigner commands,
    An' 'orrors of the locked-up night,
    With 'Ell's own thinkin' on their 'ands.
    I'd give the gold o' twenty Rands
    (If it was mine) to set 'em free
    For I 'ave learned at Waterval
    The meanin' of captivity! read more »

    By the Grey Gulf-water

    Far to the Northward there lies a land,
    A wonderful land that the winds blow over,

    The charm it holds for the restless rover; read more »

    A region desolate and wild.
    Black, chafing water: and afloat,
    And lonely as a truant child
    In a waste wood, a single boat: read more »

    Divine Epigrams: To our Lord, upon the Water Made Wine

    On the Breakwater

    On the breakwater in the summer dark, a man and a girl are sitting,
    She across his knee and they are looking face into face
    Talking to each other without words, singing rythms in silence to each other. read more »

    Prairie Waters By Night

    Chatter of birds two by two raises a night song joining a litany of running water--sheer waters
    showing the russet of old stones remembering many rains.

    And the long willows drowse on the shoulders of the running water, and sleep from much music; read more »

    The Water-Fall

    1 With what deep murmurs through time's silent stealth
    2 Doth thy transparent, cool, and wat'ry wealth
    3 Here flowing fall,
    4 And chide, and call, read more »

    The Water Nymphs

    They hide in the brook when I seek to draw nearer,
    Laughing amain when I feign to depart;
    Often I hear them, now faint and now clearer— read more »

    As a Beam O'er the Face of the Waters May Glow

    As a beam o'er the face of the waters may glow
    While the tide runs in darkness and coldness below,
    So the cheek may be tinged with a warm sunny smile,
    Though the cold heart to ruin runs darkly the while. read more »
