Poems by Isaac Rosenberg


POEMS BY ISAAC ROSENBERG Ineffable and useable, as near Solidity as human life can be : So grandly fashion these rude elements Into some newer nature, a consciousness Like naked light seizing the all-eyed soul, Oppressing with its gorgeous tyranny T C ntil they take it thus— or die. {While .speaking, he places his hand on the unsuspecting Egyptian's head and gently, caressingly, pulls his hair back until his chin is above hisforehead, and holds him so till he is suffocated. In the darkness ahead is seen the glimmer ofjavelins and spears : it is Prince Intra s cohorts come to arrest Moses.] The End. 78

POEMS FROM CAMP AND TRENCH And like the artist who creates From dying things what never dies. . . . Fragment.
