Autumn in the Islands

AFTER the wind in the wood,
Peace and the night;
After the bond and the brood,
After the height and the hush
Where the wild hawk swings,
Heart of the earth-loving thrush
Shaken with wings.
After the bloom and the leaf,
Rain on the nest;
After the splendor and grief,
After the hills, and the far
Glories and gleams,
Cloud, and the dawn of a star,
And dreams.
