IN A RESTAURANT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The darkened street was muffled with snow
Last Line: And once more on your shoulders fell the snow.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Restaurants; Cafes; Diners


THE darkened street was muffled with the snow,
The falling flakes had made your shoulders white,
And when we found a shelter from the night
Its glamor fell upon us like a blow.
The clash of dishes and the viol and bow
Mingled beneath the fever of the light.
The heat was full of savors, and the bright
Laughter of women lured the wine to flow.
A little child ate nothing while she sat
Watching a woman at a table there
Lean to a kiss beneath a drooping hat.
The hour went by, we rose and turned to go,
The somber street received us from the glare,
And once more on your shoulders fell the snow.
