Alun Lewis quotes- 7 of
but now it is the rain
Possesses us entirely, the twilight and the rain.
And we talked of girls, and dropping bombs on Rome,
And thought of the quiet dead and the loud celebrities
Your kisses close my eyes and yet you stare
As though God struck a child with nameless fears;
So we must say Goodbye, my darling,
And go, as lovers go, for ever;
The first month of his absence
I was numb and sick
And he was lost among the waves,
His ship rolled helpless in the sea,
All this slowness, all this hardness,
The nearness that is waiting in my bed,
The gradual self-effacement of the dead.
