The Mourners Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 0

Sponsored Links

I look into the aching womb of night;

    I look across the mist that masks the dead;

The moon is tired and gives but little light,

        The stars have gone to bed.

The earth is sick and seems to breathe with pain;

    A lost wind whimpers in a mangled tree;

I do not see the foul, corpse-cluttered plain,

        The dead I do not see.

The slain I would not see . . . and so I lift

    My eyes from out the shambles where they lie;

When lo! a million woman-faces drift

        Like pale leaves through the sky.

The cheeks of some are channelled deep with tears;

    But some are tearless, with wild eyes that stare

Into the shadow of the coming years

        Of fathomless despair.

And some are young, and some are very old;

    And some are rich, some poor beyond belief;

Yet all are strangely like, set in the mould

        Of everlasting grief.

They fill the vast of Heaven, face on face;

    And then I see one weeping with the rest,

Whose eyes beseech me for a moment's space. . . .

        Oh eyes I love the best!

Nay, I but dream. The sky is all forlorn,

    And there's the plain of battle writhing red:

God pity them, the women-folk who mourn!

        How happy are the dead!
