She Tells Her Love

Poem by Robert Graves

She tells her love while half asleep,
In the dark hours,
With half-words whispered low:
As Earth stirs in her winter sleep
And put out grass and flowers
Despite the snow,
Despite the falling snow.

    The repetition of " half" , the second coming so soon after the first, badly flaws this poem.(Report)Reply

    Line 5 in this copy should read: 'And puts out grass and flowers'(Report)Reply
