TO A MAN WORKING HIS WAY THROUGH THE CROWD, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: To gordon craig: your lynx's eye
Last Line: There is a space, a fit gynmasium for action.
Subject(s): Craig, Edward Gordon (1872-1966)


To Gordon Craig: Your lynx's eye
Has found the men most fit to try
To serve you. Ingenious creatures follow in your wake.

Your speech is like Ezekiel's;
You make one feel that wrath unspells
Some mysteries—some of the cabals of the vision.

The most propulsive thing you say,
Is that one need not know the way,
To be arriving. That foreword smacks of retrospect.

Undoubtedly you overbear,
But one must do that to come where
There is a space, a fit gynmasium for action.
