Comments about Evelyn Scott
I am lost in the vast cave of night.
No sound but the far-off tinkle of stars,
And the cry of a bird
Muffled in shadows.
The light flows in remotely
Through the hollow moon,
Dim strange brilliance
From waters beyond the sky.
I listen to the harsh tinkle of the far-off stars,
Feel the clammy shadows about my shoulders.
