Sheila Wingfield: Irish Woman Poet

Although born in England, Sheila Wingfield (1906-1992) spent most of her writing life in Ireland as Viscountess of Powerscourt. Her poetry owes much to the Imagists, and her short poems are frequently haiku-like. A fine Select Poems is available from The Liberties Press.

Winter

The tree still bends over the lake,
And I try to recall our love,
Our love which had a thousand leaves.
