Darkness Has Cheating Swiftness - Poem by Ivor Gurney

Darkness has cheating swiftness
When the eyes rove
Opens and shuts in long avenues
That thought cannot prove.

Darkness shuts in and closes,
There are three ghosts
Different in one clump of hedge roses
And a threat in posts.

Until one tops the road crest.
Turns, sees the city lie
Long stretched out in bright sparkles of gratefullest
Homecalling array.
