WAKEFULNESS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Jolt of market-carts
Last Line: Will the day come before you have opened to me?
Subject(s): Sleep


Jolt of market-carts;
Steady drip of horses' hoofs on hard pavement;
A black sky lacquered over with blueness,
And the lights of Battersea Bridge
Pricking pale in the dawn.
The beautiful hours are passing
And still you sleep!
Tired heart of my joy,
Incurved upon your dreams,
Will the day come before you have opened to me?
