City Night ~

The city is squalid and sinister, With the silver-barred street in the midst,

They have watered the street,

It shines in the glare of lamps, Cold, white lamps,

And lies Like a slow-moving river,

Barred with silver and black

Cabs go down it, One, And then another.

Between them I hear the shuffling of feet.

Tramps doze on the window-ledges,

Night-walkers pass along the sidewalks.

The city is squalid and sinister, With the silver-barred street in the midst,

Slow-moving, A river leading nowhere.

Opposite my window, The moon cuts, Clear and round, Through the plum-coloured night.

She cannot light the city; It is too bright.

It has white lamps, And glitters coldly.

I stand in the window and watch the moon.

She is thin and lustreless, But I love her.

I know the moon,

And this is an alien city. ~
