The Web Poetry Corner - M A Heathcote - When a savage sings
When a savage sings
M A Heathcote
Poetry is in the heart of misery
Because when a savage sings
She hears deaths alluring wings
Subdividing the savagery
In all but immortal things!
And as her savagery procures a song
Of bread and wine
Of milk-dew webs of time
What matter her musicís throng,
Her idle songs rhyme
What matter the molten breath
In their first words of death
What matter the alluring wings
If a god in heaven sings.
