Calmly We Walk Through This April's Day

Rating: 2.9

Calmly we walk through this April's day,
Metropolitan poetry here and there,
In the park sit pauper and rentier,
The screaming children, the motor-car
Fugitive about us, running away,
Between the worker and the millionaire
Number provides all distances,
It is Nineteen Thirty-Seven now,
Many great dears are taken away,
What will become of you and me

(This is the school in which we learn...)

Delmore found the spot that warmed my heart on this cold winter morning: May memory restore again and again the smallest color of the smallest day. Amen
