[Creeve Roe] (5 September 1858 – 29 December 1905 / Navan, County Armagh, Ireland)

Anna

The pale discrowned stacks of maize,
   Like spectres in the sun,
Stand shivering nigh Avonaise,
   Where all is dead and gone.

The sere leaves make a music vain,
   With melancholy chords;
Like cries from some old battle-plain,
   Like clash of phantom swords.
