Austerity
By Janet Loxley Lewis
 
From “Cold Hills”

I HAVE lived so long
On the cold hills alone …
I loved the rock
And the lean pine trees,
Hated the life in the turfy meadow,        5
Hated the heavy, sensuous bees.
I have lived so long
Under the high monotony of starry skies,
I am so cased about
With the clean wind and the cold nights,        10
People will not let me in
To their warm gardens
Full of bees.
