Easter Eve

I saw two women weeping by the tomb
Of one new buried, in a fair green place
Bowered with shrubs;--the eve retained no trace
Of aught that day performed,--but the faint gloom
Of dying day was spread upon the sky;--
The moon was broad and bright above the wood;--
The distance sounded of a multitude,
Music and shout and mingled revelry.
At length came gleaming through the thicket shade
Helmet and casque--and a steel-armëaut;d band
Watched round the sepulchre in solemn stand;
The night-word passed, from man to man conveyed;
And I could see those women rise and go
Under the dark trees moving sad and slow.
