The White Ship (37)


(37) on the balcony


We stepped out through the sliding
To see the park from forty floors;
The lamp lights in the darkened trees
Formed snakes of green in the breeze.

(I saw the distance in her eyes
My wealth was now a wall
Would she love me for myself?
Would she love at all?)

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.
