Passage

Behold her, single in the filed,

Yon solitary Highland Lass!

Reaping and singing by herself;

Stop here, or gently pass!

Along she cuts and binds the grain,

And sings a melancholy strain;

O listen! for the Vale profound

Is overflowing with the sound.

No Nightingale did ever chaunt

More welcome notes to weary bands

Of travellers in some shady haunt,

Among Arabian sands:

A voice so thrilling ne’er was heard

In spring time from the Cuckoo-bird,

Breaking the silence of the seas

Among the farthest Hebrides.

Will no one tell me what she sings?

Perhaps the plaintive numbers flow

For old, unhappy, far-off things

And battles long ago:

Or is it some more humble lay,

Familiar matter of to-day?

Some natural sorrow, loss, or plain,

That has been, and may be again?

Whate’er the theme, the Maiden sang

As if her song could have no ending

I saw her singing at her work,

And o’er the sickle bending;

I listenend, motionless and still,

And, as I mounted up the hill, ‘

The music in my heart I bore, ‘

Long after it was heart no more.

- William Wordsworth

Passage

This child is built to my design

Yet what he loves I cannot share,

Silence surrounds us. I would have

Him prodigal, returning to

His father’s house, the home he knew,

Rather than see him make and move

His world. I would forgive his too,

Shaping from sorrow a new love.

Father and son, we both must live

On the same globe and the same land.

He speaks: I cannot understand

Myself, why anger grows from grief.

We each put out an empty hand.

Longing for something to forgive.

Elizabeth Jennings
