Woone Smile Mwore Comments

Rating: 2.5
O! MARY, when the zun went down,
Woone night in spring, w’ viry rim,
Behind the nap wi’ woody crown,
An’ left your smilen face so dim;

Like so many of Barnes' poems, there is a wonderful aura of tenderness in the careful use of words. One is left doubting, until the last few lines, as to the ultimate 'destination' of Mary. The fact that she became his wife is so beautifully expressed in the gentle conclusion. His imagery brings a lump to the throat!
