    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,
    And none may fathom or understand
    The charm it holds for the restless rover; read more »

    Hayeswater

    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

    Thou water turn'st to wine, fair friend of life,
    Thy foe, to cross the sweet arts of thy reign,

    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 »
