TO A SCREEN-MAKER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Not of silver nor of coral
Last Line: Hanging high.
Subject(s): Screens


I.

Not of silver nor of coral
But of weather-beaten laurel
Carve it out.

II.

Carve out here and there a face
And a dragon circling space
Coiled about.

III.

Represent a branching tree
Uniform like tapestry
And no sky.

IV.

And devise a rustic bower
And a pointed passion flower
Hanging high.
