Argolis, by Marjorie Allen Seiffert


Like sun on grasses
Warming to life
Quaint beetles, curious weeds,
Till earth awakens, pregnant beneath its rays--
So came the shepherds down to Argolis.   As nameless trees
Cast cloud-grey shadows there
On moon-pale, tarnished snow,
Till snow and shadow are lost,
Alike confused and forgotten
Among the withered reeds--
So lies their memory across its heart. - Marjorie Allen Seiffert
