Synopses & Reviews
Excerpt from Narcissus and Other Poems
Stole earthward, while old Somnus far away Stirred in his poppied sleep and silence lay Around him as a ﬂame lies round the thing It feeds on, through the darkness towering Near neighbours to the stars, and royally Invested in the midnight's majesty Ossa on Pelion, the peaks looked down, Wearing the silver moonlight for a crown. And when in anger or unholy mirth Jove loosed his blazing tempests on the earth, And Eolus at his great lord's command Sent his wild brood hallooing up the land With all the furies following in their track, The peaks, defiant, hurled Jove's thunders back And met his bolts unmoved. There lay the lake.
