Isaac Rosenberg

"Returning, We Hear the Larks"

Sombre the night is
And, though we have our lives, we know
What sinister threat lurks there

Dragging these anguished limbs, we only know
This poison-blasted track opens on our camp –
On a little safe sleep

But hark! Joy – joy – strange joy
Lo! Heights of night ringing with unseen larks:
Music showering on our upturned faces

Death could drop from the dark
As easily as song –
But song only dropped
Like a blind man's dreams on the sand
By dangerous tides;
Like a girl's dark hair, for she dreams no ruin lies there
Or her kisses where a serpent hides
