The Flood Analysis

Author: poem of John Clare Type: poem Views: 4

On Lolham Brigs in wild and lonely mood

I've seen the winter floods their gambols play

Through each old arch that trembled while I stood

Bent o'er its wall to watch the dashing spray

As their old stations would be washed away

Crash came the ice against the jambs and then

A shudder jarred the arches—yet once more

It breasted raving waves and stood agen

To wait the shock as stubborn as before

- White foam brown crested with the russet soil

As washed from new plough lands would dart beneath

Then round and round a thousand eddies boil

On tother side—then pause as if for breath

One minute—and engulphed—like life in death

Whose wrecky stains dart on the floods away

More swift than shadows in a stormy day

Straws trail and turn and steady—all in vain

The engulfing arches shoot them quickly through

The feather dances flutters and again

Darts through the deepest dangers still afloat

Seeming as faireys whisked it from the view

And danced it o'er the waves as pleasures boat

Light hearted as a thought in May -

Trays—uptorn bushes—fence demolished rails

Loaded with weeds in sluggish motions stray

Like water monsters lost each winds and trails

Till near the arches—then as in affright

It plunges—reels—and shudders out of sight

Waves trough—rebound—and fury boil again

Like plunging monsters rising underneath

Who at the top curl up a shaggy main

A moment catching at a surer breath

Then plunging headlong down and down—and on

Each following boil the shadow of the last

And other monsters rise when those are gone

Crest their fringed waves—plunge onward and are past

- The chill air comes around me ocean blea

From bank to bank the waterstrife is spread

Strange birds like snow spots o'er the huzzing sea

Hang where the wild duck hurried past and fled

On roars the flood—all restless to be free

Like trouble wandering to eternity
