The garden,--with its heat one twinge
Of dinning locusts,--picket-bound,

Held up the gate that scraped the ground.

Or far into the heat among the sands
The gembok nations, snuffing up the wind,
Drawn by the scent of water—­and the bands

With the sun-dazzle in their midst, opprest
With prey, and spiritless for lack of rest!
