Sonnet To Rupert Brooke

We laid him in a cool and shadowed grove
One evening in the dreamy scent of thyme
Where leaves were green, and whispered high above β€”
A grave as humble as it was sublime;
There, dreaming in the fading deeps of light β€”
The hands that thrilled to touch a woman's hair;
Brown eyes, that loved the Day, and looked on Night,
A soul that found at last its answered Prayer...
There daylight, as a dust, slips through the trees.

[Hata Bildir]
