Like A Pyramid

She was exactly employed,
LIke a pyramid of the day,
Sent by a violent irruption,
Overtaken by gales of speed.
She ran like a commander,
Telling the ready instants forcibly,
Chance was a greatest artificer.
An event was the gardener,
Nurturing the few who owned this event.

The vast sea of letters arrived,
In spite of a driving rain,
Though gallops, though beautiful queens
Uprose through the trees on the horizon.
Upon the steps made,
Driving rains struck at the messenger.
She was a postwoman of a kindness,
A message of the order,
A hastener of what is no way.

I employed her from her questions,
Arranging the house as soon as entering it,
Seeing and awaiting for instructions,
In spite of the revealing rain.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
