The Abbot Circle 19 3 To a Musician Were I to paint your portrait I ' d only draw your hands They ' d show the life and spirit Your face might never show. Their size, their strength, Their loveliness; Their grace, their poise, Their tenderness, All yours, and you. Were I to paint your portrait I ' d only draw your hands, And they would speak so clearly, Your soul would be revealed. Jessie Marianne Hirst 96

The Abbot Ctrcle 19 3 Improvisations As the poet sees her: — Her eves are blue as the autumn mist, Her hair is like the sunny South; A smile, the ghost of a childhood laugh, Still lingers on her mouth. As the satirist sees her: — Her hair is only a peroxide hue, Her painted smile, too, is a part; She ' s like a puppet in a show For she has a sawdust heart! Cologne Cathedral A silent drizzle fell from a soft black sky, smiled as it passed through the ray of a street lamp, and softly caressed each blade and flower in the cathedral park which lay half concealed in blue shadows. Beyond, veiled in rain-mist, like a dream or a vision rose the towers and spire of Cologne ' s great cathedral. The grace of the flutings and tall pointed arches, the deli- cate curve of each misty rose-window was faintly revealed by the city ' s dim light. The high-flung spires soared through the darkness, like a spirit ethereal, uplifting, unreal, or like supplicating arms reached upward in prayer. In such peace and beauty rare, The Infinite seemed hovering there. Jessie Marianne Hirst 95

The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 The Indian Perhaps, one time Long years ago, In these same woods The Indian ran. Perhaps he crouched Behind that tree, In wary wait For warrior foe. Swift as the arrow From the bow, Or as the deer When startled, flees. Perhaps he drank From that same brook, Or lay upon Its mossy bank. No Indian now; Just brook and trees, And near my foot Stone arrow heads. Jessie Marianne Hirst 77 me Tick tock, tick tock, How the time drags! Studying, studying, How the time lags! Tick tock, tick tock, How the time flies! Dancing, dancing, Time ' s a surprise! 97
