Poems of Richard Le Gallienne

The Wife from Fairyland

Her talk was all of woodland things,
   Of little lives that pass
Away in one green afternoon,
   Deep in the haunted grass;

For she had come from fairyland,
   The morning of a day
When the world that still was April
   Was turning into May.

[Hata Bildir]
