A Feast of Lanterns, by L. Cranmer-Byng, [1916], at


Now pale flocks glimmer as they wind along;
Into the deep ravine the herd goes down;
The cold dumb pool awaits the nightly throng
Of wild geese wailing through the twilight brown.
With jars of new-made wine old farmer Wang
Gladdens the neighbours. Gloomy faces shine
And dark robes kindle to the flush of wine.
