Hilda Doolittle Poems


All Greece hates
the still eyes in the white face,
the lustre as of olives
where she stands,

Sea Rose

Rose, harsh rose,
marred and with stint of petals,
meagre flower, thin,
sparse of leaf,


O wind, rend open the heat,
cut apart the heat,
rend it to tatters.

The Mysteries Remain

The mysteries remain,
I keep the same
cycle of seed-time
and of sun and rain;

Pear Tree

Silver dust
lifted from the earth,
higher than my arms reach,
you have mounted.
