Yon wall I watch, with a wealth of green:
Its bald red bricks draped, nothing loath,
In lappets of tangle they laugh between.

Now, what is it makes pulsate the robe?

Feet confined to a plot of grass and eyes from a wall not once away! Perceptional feeling is brilliantly expressed in this gently flown poem. Heart understands every beat of life. Excellently penned beautiful poem this is.10
