167. The Half Door
 
By Seumas O'Sullivan
 
 
DARK eyes, wonderful, strange and dear they shone
  A moment’s space;
And wandering under the white stars I had gone
  In a strange place.
 
Over the half door careless, your white hand        5
  A moment gleamed;
And I was walking on some great storm-heaped strand
  Forever it seemed.
 
I would give all that glory to see once more,
  A moment’s space,        10
Your eyes gleam strange and dark above the half door,
  Your Hand’s white grace.
