Panic - Poem by Aldous Huxley
The eyes of the portraits on the wall
Look at me, follow me,
I take it their glance means nothing at all?
- Clearly, oh clearly! Nothing at all ...
Out in the gardens by the lake
The sleeping peacocks suddenly wake;
Out in the gardens, moonlit and forlorn,
Each of them sounds his mournful horn:
Shrill peals that waver and crack and break.
What can have made the peacocks wake?
