First Line: And when on the dark steel came the roads
Last Line: We can always say we have gone through great rooms together.
Subject(s): Relationships; Stars


AND when on the dark steel came the roads
Of a milky mist, and a spray of stars,
Bunches and squares and a spatter of stars,
We counted stars, one by one, a million and a million.
And we remembered those stars as fishermen remember fish,
As bees remember blossoms, as crops remember rains.
And these were rooms too; we can so reckon.
We can always say we have gone through great rooms together.
