Julian Grenfell


Oxford English Thesaurus (OED) Hyperlinks Off


The nude planet is cozy with springtime, And also with eco-friendly yard and also breaking treesLeans to the sunlight's kiss glorying, And also quivers in the caring wind; And also life is colour as well as heat and also light, And also a making every effort evermore for these; As well as he is dead that will certainly not deal with; As well as that passes away battling has rise.

The dealing with guy will from the sunTake heat, and also life from the radiant planet; Rate with the light-foot winds to run, And also with the trees a more recent birth; As well as when his combating will be done, Great remainder, as well as volume after scarcity.

All the intense firm of HeavenHold him in their high comradeship, The Dog-Star, as well as the Sis 7, Orion‘‘ s Belt and also sworded hip.

The timberland trees that stand with each other, They stand to him every one a close friend; They carefully talk in the gusty climate, They direct to valley and also ridge's end.

The kestrel floating by day, As well as the little owls that call by evening, Proposal him eager as well as quick as they, As eager of ear, as swift of view.

The blackbird sings to him ‘‘ Bro, bro, If this be the last track you will sing, Sing well, for you will certainly not sing one more; Sibling, sing!'

In bleak, skeptical, waiting hrs, Prior to the brazen craze begins, The steeds reveal him nobler powers;O person eyes, daring hearts!

And also when the burning minute breaks, As well as all points else run out mind, And also just delight of fight takesHim by the throat, and also makes him blind,

With happiness as well as loss of sight he will understand, Not caring much to recognize, that stillNor lead neither steel will reach him, soThat is be not the Destined Will.

The thundering line of fight stands, As well as airborne fatality sings and also groans; However Day will squeeze him with solid hands, As well as Evening will fold him in soft wings.
