    How about Ted Hughes’ ,Song?


    O lady, when the tipped cup of the moon blessed you
    You became soft fire with a cloud’s grace;
    The difficult stars swam for eyes in your face;
    You stood, and your shadow was my place:
    You turned, your shadow turned to ice
    O my lady.

    O lady, when the sea caressed you
    You were a marble of foam, but dumb.
    When will the stone open its tomb?
    When will the waves give over their foam?
    You will not die, nor come home,
    O my lady.

    O lady, when the wind kissed you
    You made him music for you were a shaped shell.
    I follow the waters and the wind still
    Since my heart heard it and all to pieces fell
    Which your lovers stole, meaning ill,
    O my lady.

    O lady, consider when I shall have lost you
    The moon’s full hands, scattering waste,
    The sea’s hands, dark from the world’s breast,
    The world’s decay where the wind’s hands have passed,
    And my head, worn out with love, at rest
    In my hands, and my hands full of dust,
    O my lady.

    When you consider that this was written when Hughes was only sixteen it is amazing. But any poet would be blessed to produce work such as this whatever their age. This poem is packed full of imagery with the metaphor running through and holding the whole together.
