V. A Litany
By Rosa Newmarch (1857–1940)
O LIGHTS that break from fickle April skies,
Let me forget those grey, inconstant eyes.
O raindrops glittering when the shower clears,
Let me forget my swift and burning tears.
O wind that cries through wastes untenanted,        5
Let me forget the bitter things were said.
O sea that woos the cold, white rock in vain,
Let me forget the past with all its pain.
O mother earth, warm with spring showers, and wet,
Give me a place wherein I may forget.        10
