Dame Edith Sitwell Light Poems

  • 1.
    Beneath the flat and paper sky
    The sun, a demon's eye,
    Glowed through the air, that mask of glass;
    All wand'ring sounds that pass
  • 2.

    Tall as a crane,
    The morning light creaks down again;

    I kept my answers small and kept them near;
    Big questions bruised my mind but still I let
    Small answers be a bullwark to my fear.
