Before Action
written by Wilfrid Wilson Gibson
Link to further information




      I sit beside the brazier's glow,
      And, drowsing in the heat,
      A dream of daffodils that blow
      And lambs that frisk and bleat -

      Black lambs that frolic in the snow
      Among the daffodils,
      In a far orchard that I know
      Beneath the Malvern hills.

      Next year the daffodils will blow,
      And lambs will frisk and bleat;
      But I'll not feel the the brazier's glow,
      Nor any cold or heat.
