I have had enough.

I gasp for breath.Every way ends, every road,

every foot-path leads at last

to the hill-crest-

then you retrace your steps,

or find the same slope on the other side,

precipitate.I have had enough-

border-pinks, clove-pinks, wax-lilies,

herbs, sweet-cress.O for some sharp swish of a branch-

there is no scent of resin

in this place,

no taste of bark, of coarse weeds,

aromatic, astringent-

only border on border of scented pinks.Have you seen fruit under cover

that wanted light-

pears wadded in cloth,

protected from the frost,

melons, almost ripe,

smothered in straw?Why not let the pears cling

to the empty branch?

All your coaxing will only make

a bitter fruit-

let them cling, ripen of themselves,test their own worth,

nipped, shrivelled by the frost,

to fall at last but fair

With a russet coat.Or the melon-

let it bleach yellow

in the winter light,

even tart to the taste-

it is better to taste of frost-

the exquisite frost-

than of wadding and of dead grass.For this beauty,

beauty without strength,

chokes out life.

I want wind to break,

scatter these pink-stalks,

snap off their spiced heads,

fling them about with dead leaves-

spread the paths with twigs,

limbs broken off,

trail great pine branches,

hurled from some far wood

right across the melon-patch,

break pear and quince-

leave half-trees, torn, twisted

but showing the fight was valiant.O to blot out this garden

to forget, to find a new beauty

in some terrible

wind-tortured place.
