Against the Sun
By Helen Dudley
DARKNESS utter and absolute of the night
Hides from me the face and eyes
Of one who loved me in the light,
Obscures the violent leap of mind to mind
Into a stranger world—        5
Passion that seemed to bind,
Hides from me utterly what I have known,
The unquiet soul of one
Who captured joy with inward moan.
      A ghost against the sun,        10
      A shiver in the grass,
      Dead memories that drift,
      And pass, and pass.
