The Return

See, they return; ah, see the tentative
____Movements, and the slow feet,
____The trouble in the pace and the uncertain
____Wavering!
See, they return, one, and by one,
With fear, as half-awakened;
As if the snow should hesitate
And murmur in the wind,
==============and half-turn back;
These were the ‘Wing’d-with-Awe’,
______________Inviolable.

Gods of the wingèd shoe!
With them the silver hounds,
______________sniffing the trace of air!

Haie! Haie!
_____These were the swift to harry;
These were the keen-scented;
These were the souls of blood.

Slow on the leash,
______________pallid the leash-men!
