GRAY FOG, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: A fog drifts in, the heavy laden
Last Line: And heavy as the dead.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Fog; Haze

A fog drifts in, the heavy laden
Cold white ghost of the sea --
One by one the hills go out,
The road and the pepper-tree.

I watch the fog float in at the window
With the whole world gone blind,
Everything, even my longing, drowses,
Even the thoughts in my mind.

I put my head on my hands before me,
There is nothing left to be done or said,
There is nothing to hope for, I am tired,
And heavy as the dead.
