Wide Haven
 
Clement Wood (1888–1950)
 
 
TIRED of man’s futile, petty cry,
  Of lips that lie and flout,
I saw the slow sun dim and die
  And the slim dusk slip out …
  Life held no room for doubt.        5
 
What though Death claim the ones I prize
  In War’s insane crusade,
Last night I saw Orion rise
  And the great day-star fade,
  And I am not dismayed.        10
