To the dark heaven all night, by dawn Has dreamed a premonition
Of ice across its eye as if The ice-age had begun to heave.
The lawn overtrodden and strewn
From the night before, and the whistling green Shrubbery are doomed.
Ice Has got its spearhead into place.
First a skin, delicately here Restraining a ripple from the air;
Soon plate and rivet on pond and brook;
Then tons of chain and massive lock
To hold rivers. Then, sound by sight
Will Mammoth and Saber-tooth celebrate Reunion while a fist of cold
Squeezes the fire at the core of the world,
Squeezes the fire at the core of the heart,
And now it is about to start.
