John Cowper Powys


John Cowper Powys (1872-1963), British poet.



To Isadora Duncan


With the gesture of a god,


You gave me back my youth;


And a scent of violets


Overflowed the world.


With the gesture of a god,


You gave me back my love,


And tears deeper than tears


Overflowed my heart.


With the gesture of a god,


You trampled on fate,


You lifted up on high


Those that had fallen -


All the oppressed,


All the humiliated,


All the offended ;


You lifted them up on high


And they were comforted.


With the gesture of god,


You wrestled with Demogorgon ;


You brought hope back


And freedom and triumph


To those whom the world had crushed.


All of us, sitting in darkness,


Saw a great light.


You danced as dance the morning stars


And the universe was conquered ;


You smote the universe in the mouth ;


And you saved us -


You - a woman.
