  • When the Thorn Blows

    Mary Webb (1881-1927)

    ​​​​​​​Dawn glimmers white beyond the burning hill
    Where sunbeams light a fire in every tree.
    The morning bird is singing clear and shrill;
    And oh, my love! when will you come to me?

    The daisies whitely sleep beneath the dew;
    On the wet road the stones are fair to see;
    Cloudy, the blackthorn floats upon the blue;
    And oh, my love! when will you come to me?

    The wind came walking in the shaken wood;
    He shouted from the mountains and the sea.
    By the pale thorn he paused, in lover’s mood -
    And oh, my love! when will you come to me?

    My heart has blossomed meekly as the thorn;
    It has its dews, and daisies two of three.
    The heavens quicken, green as April corn - 
    And oh, my love! when will you come to me?
