We Were Two Green Rushes

A poem by Edward Powys Mathers

We were two green rushes by opposing banks,
And the small stream ran between.
Not till the water beat us down
Could we be brought together,
Not till the winter came
Could we be mingled in a frosty sleep,
Locked down and close.

From the Chinese of J. Wing (nineteenth century).
