The Destroyer (Poem by Edwin John Dove Pratt)

Beautiful Poem


The Destroyer
By Edwin John Dove Pratt


Once more, the wind — 
And thou dost go on an old familiar way
In tragic fashion,
As a corsair, pursuing his prey
With the lust of passion,
Falls like a burst of hail
On an autumn yield,
Till every reach and gulf and bay
Is left with the stubble of life and sail,
With the face of the waters like unto the face of the field.
