Napier, Sydney Elliott : February
#1
Sydney Elliott Napier
1870 – 1940 Australien


February

This scorpion Summer - every burnished scale
Aflame with mortal agony and hate -
Crawls, blind and frenzied, to his venomed fate
And stabs his life out with his armed tail!

The sun is brazen, and the skies are mail,
And airy argosies bear dusty freight,
And, see! the witches of the wind gyrate
O'er that which, once so green, has grown so pale!

But, ah! though February, burnt and bare,
May claim and take his fill a little space -
About his wailing western winds that parch,
And through the haze that weights his saddened air,
There comes a whisper of autumnal grace;
There comes a promise of the rains of March.
