The Blind Man
By Skipwith Cannéll
HE sits in the sun and warms
The blind eyes of him
In the light of it.
In the heart of him is no anger.
At the Great Queen        5
Who blinded him;
’Twas a proud woman
Put out his eyes and left him
To warm their sockets
In the heat of the sun.        10
Only in the grey mists,
Only in the black rain
Burns a little anger
That she has made him blind.
