English Poetry. Charlotte Brontё. Speak of the North! A Lonely Moor. Шарлотта Бронте.

Charlotte Brontё (Шарлотта Бронте)

* * *

Speak of the North! A lonely moor
Silent and dark and tractless swells,
The waves of some wild streamlet pour
Hurriedly through its ferny dells.

Profoundly still the twilight air,
Lifeless the landscape; so we deem
Till like a phantom gliding near
A stag bends down to drink the stream.

And far away a mountain zone,
A cold, white waste of snow-drifts lies,
And one star, large and soft and lone,
Silently lights the unclouded skies.

  1. Pilate’s Wife’s Dream
  2. Stanzas
  3. The Missionary
  4. Gilbert
  5. Parting
