CLEAR AND COLDER; BOSTON COMMON, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: As I went down through the common
Last Line: The pace of the winter town.
Subject(s): Boston; Winter


As I went down through the common,
It was bright with the light of day,
For the wind and rain had swept the leaves
And the shadow of summer away.
The walks were all fresh-blacked with rain
As I went briskly down: --
I felt my own quick step begin
The pace of the winter town.

As I went down through the common,
The sky was wild and pale;
I saw one tree with a jib of leaves
In the stress of the aftergale;
But the others rattled naked poles
As I went briskly down.
I felt my own quick step begin
The pace of the winter town.

As I went down through the common
In the crisp October dawn,
Benches were wet and stuck with leaves
And the idle ones were gone.
The folk abroad raced on with me
As I went briskly down.
I felt my own quick step begin
The pace of the winter town.

As I went down through the common,
Then felt I first delight
Of the city's thronging winter days
And dazzling winter night,
Of the life and revelry to be --
As I went briskly down.
I felt my own quick step begin
The pace of the winter town.
