Contents: The return --
October-an etching --
Autumn daybreak --
The oak-leaves --
The fledgling --
The hedge of hemlocks --
Cap D'Antibes --
From a train window --
The fawn --
Valentine --
In the grave no flower --
Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies --
Spring in the garden --
Sonnet --
Aubade --
Sappho crosses the dark river into Hades --
Epitaph --
On thought in harness --
Desolation dreamed of --
The leaf and the tree --
On the wide heath --
Apostrophe to man --
Two sonnets in memory --
My spirit, sore from marching --
Conscientious objector --
Above these cares --
If still your orchards bear --
Lines for a grave-stone --
How naked, how without a wall --
Before this cooling planet shall be cold --
When death was young and bleaching bones were few --
Cretaceous bird, your giant claw no lime --
O Earth, unhappy planet born to die --
When man is gone and only gods remain --
See where Capella with her golden kids --
He heard the coughing tiger in the night Observe how Miyanoshita cracked in two --
He woke in terror to a sky more bright --
The broken dike, the levee washed away --
Sweeter was loss than silver coins to spend --
Now forth to meadow as the farmer goes --
His heatless room the watcher of the stars --
Him not the golden fang of furious heaven --
Now sets his foot upon the eastern sill --
Alas for man, so stealthily betrayed --
Only the diamond and the diamond's dust --
Here lies, and none to mourn him but the sea
Responsibility: by Edna St. Vincent Millay.
