One of those blue official things;

The moon, a silver wafer, clings.

By a sure voice that can most sweetly tell,
How far off yet a glimpse of morning light,
And if to lure the truant back be well,

In the soil of life where the souls are grown.

Morning Express

Along the wind-swept platform, pinched and white,
The travellers stand in pools of wintry light,
Offering themselves to morn's long, slanting arrows.
The train's due; porters trundle laden barrows.

Went your bright way, and left me to fall back
On my own world of poorer deed and aim;

A Working Party

With hands that pawed the sodden bags of chalk.

Between the dawn and the daytime;

Coquette

Spring is a flirt. Unexpectedly gleaming
Over the shoulder of some far blue hill.
We glimpse the blue eyes of her, smiling and beaming,
We hold out our hands to her, all of a thrill.

Clarence Michael James Stanislaus Dennis
The Clapping

There is a grace in the way people do things, even the simplest tasks-
the dance with which their fingers encircle the chicken's gaze, coaxing
the edges of its eyes into paleness, their calling upon it to rest now,
their speaking in a way that acknowledges something common to both of them-

That glorious blaze behind the town?

Of chopped up light lie around and reveal
A glimpse of streets, a few clumps of houses.

And blindly over us there blows
A swarm of years that fill the land,
Then fade, and are as fallen snows.

Seeing so many eyes and hands and faces,
So many mouths, and all with secret meanings,—

And fulfilled it with the sunset glow;

London Bridge

“Do I hear them? Yes, I hear the children singing-and what of it?

A Glimpse

A GLIMPSE, through an interstice caught,
Of a crowd of workmen and drivers in a bar-room, around the stove,

Of a youth who loves me, and whom I love, silently approaching, and

When departing light is faint and pale,

Gazing thro' the mystic veil.

And hear the monotonous hours clang negligently by.
