| Bald as is the winter tree.|| 1|
| Careless as gods for who might live or die.|| 2|
like the far golden lustre of a dark god-like town.|| 3|
| Drifted as an unsteered log.|| 4|
|Fair as the lightning thwart the sky,|
As sun-dyed snow upon the high
Untrodden heaps of threatening stone
The eagle looks upon alone.
| Grey, like the soft creeping twilight.|| 6|
| Quaked like river-shaken rush.|| 7|
|Rushed in as rush the waters through a cave|
That tunnels half a sea-girt lonely rock.
|It goes slow, comes slow, like a big mill-wheel|
On some broad stream, with long green weeds a-sway,
And soft and slow it rises and it falls,
Still going onward.
| Smiling like heaven.|| 10|
| Stared listlessly,|
Like those who walk in sleep.
| As sweet as the rose-scented zephyr those do meet who near the happy islands of the blest.|| 12|
| Trembled as a man in fear.|| 13|
