Summer Images (X)



I love the south-west wind, or low or loud,
And not the less when sudden drops of rain
Moisten my pallid cheek from ebon cloud,
Threatening soft showers again,
That over lands new ploughed and meadow grounds,
Summer's sweet breath unchain,
And wake harmonious sounds.

Rich music breathes in summer's every sound;
And in her harmony of varied greens,
Woods, meadows, hedge-rows, corn-fields, all around
Much beauty intervenes,
Filling with harmony the ear and eye;
While oer the mingling scenes
Far spreads the laughing sky.

So glad there continues to be more of this poem! It's as full of pleasures as bare feet in a cool river, with all the day stretching out before one.

Just now I particularly like the way he puts the sweet, slightly tangy earthy scent that comes with a welcome rain:
'...soft showers...
That over lands new ploughed and meadow grounds,
Summer's sweet breath unchain'

(Splendid horses, too!)
