Excerpt: ... MYRTIS OF MYTILENE BLISS CARMAN There is a pink upon the almond trees, The sunlight is grown warm, the south-west wind Makes a soft music in the soughing pines; And where the blue seas break more gently now On all the shores of Hellas it is spring. And yesterday I saw a swallow flash Across the azure noon to wheel and drop To her old nest by thy deserted door. O Myrtis, why wilt thou not also come Back with the spring to Mytilene now? The pear tree in the garden is in bud, The vines once more are full of twitterings, And in the woods the violets unfold. All these return, why not the only one That ever could enhance the year's rebirth? Men buy and sell, folk gossip at their work, Children make noise at play, black ships come in To the gray wharves; but where thy beauteous head Was wont to pass is only empty air, With silence where thy laughter used to ring. Even the little street looks poor and mean That used to wear such glory. Loneliness Is heavy on the doorsill where last year The lightest feet in Lesbos came and went. There is no welcome in the twilight now. Sadly the starlight comes to visit there; The soft spring winds sigh at the latch in vain; In their Pandean chorus the green frogs Cry from the marsh and there is none to hear; The rain beats down and there is none to heed. O Myrtis, to what country art thou gone? And is there golden sunlight in that land, And kindly air and love and joy and peace? Is the new day more wonderful than ours, And are the loving fortunate and wise? Men say there is a country of the dead, But I know only that thou art not here, That something dims the sunlight on the sea, And makes the wind among the grasses sigh A mournful music at the heart of spring. Some prophesy we shall return in time And wear this earth's mortal...
