Compensations by Myra Morris

| No TrackBacks
These things are left to me;
The magic of the sea
Blackbirds that sing at dawn,
Frilled daisies round a dappled lawn!

No matter what has been,
Still have I worlds of green,
Sunsets that flame and die,
Blown boughs against a wintry sky!

If I have reached no place
That I had hoped to grace,
This have I known and known --
Earth's beating heart against my own!
