The Sonnets
'Sometimes a summer's day begins in mist'
'I did not see the bombs fall on the Thames'
'Was it mere chance that brought the mating hare'
'Should we preserve intensity alone'
'Night wins. The realizing dark'
'Just now is dawn, and I am out of doors'
'Twenty-eight fighter bombers overhead'
'The held cascade of vaulting stone unites'
