Vol. V. Browning to Rupert Brooke
A Moment
By Mary Elizabeth Coleridge (1861–1907)
THE CLOUDS had made a crimson crown
  About the mountains high.
The stormy sun was going down
  In a stormy sky.
Why did you let your eyes so rest on me,        5
  And hold your breath between?
In all the ages this can never be
  As if it had not been.
