    Not a comment on C Day Lewis, but on the poems listed here...
    No 4, 'Untitled', has the same poem as No 3, 'Come, live with me and be my love'.
    Would love to know what the poet ACTUALLY wrote under his 'Untitled' title!

A Hard Frost

A frost came in the night and stole my world
And left this changeling for it - a precocious
Image of spring, too brilliant to be true:
White lilac on the window-pane, each grass-blade
Furred like a catkin, maydrift loading the hedge.
The elms behind the house are elms no longer
But blossomers in crystal, stems of the mist
That hangs yet in the valley below, amorphous
As the blind tissue whence creation formed.

The sun looks out and the fields blaze with diamonds
Mockery spring, to lend this bridal gear
For a few hours to a raw country maid,
Then leave ...
