[Untitled] Missing MS title?
Why Dost Thou Struggle
Fair Weather and Foul
O far away to seek, close-hid for heart to find
O land sore torn and riven
We loosened from the quays on a Friday
Thus have I told many ways of the dealings of prudence with men
Peevish and weak and fretful do I pray
Dramatic fragment containing King, Oliver, Sir Walter, and Yoland
Thou hast it then the pouch
Sad-eyed and soft and grey thou art, O morn!
So I rose and felt my feet on the daisied grass in a while
Alone and unhappy by the fire I sat
Deep Sea, mighty wonder from "Earth the Healer, Earth the Keeper" (copyist version 1)
