Duncan Campbell Scott (Дункан Кэмпбелл Скотт)

To Winter (Come, O thou conqueror of the flying year)

Come, O thou conqueror of the flying year;
Come from thy fastness of the Arctic suns;
Mass on the purple waste and wide frontier
Thy wanish hosts and silver clarions.

Then heap this sombre shoulder of the world
With shifting bastions; let thy storm winds blare;
Drift wide thy pallid gonfalon unfurled;
And arm with daggers all the desperate air.

These are but raids in dreams, and friendly brawls;
Thou art a gentle giant that half sleeps,
And blusters grandly to his frozen thralls,
The more to charm them with the wealth he keeps:

We hardly hear thy bluff and hearty word,
When over the first flower sings the first bird.

Duncan Campbell Scott’s other poems:

  1. The Voice and the Dusk
  2. Rapids at Night
  3. The Sea by the Wood
  4. At William Maclennan’s Grave
  5. In the Country Churchyard
