THE BARBER'S, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Gold locks, and black locks
Last Line: In the bright, blue day.
Alternate Author Name(s): Ramal, Walter; De La Mare, Walter
Subject(s): Barbers

Gold locks, and black locks,
Red locks, and brown,
Topknot to love-curl
The hair wisps down;
Straight above the clear eyes,
Rounded round the ears,
Snip-snap and snick-a-snack,
Clash the Barber's shears;
Us, in the looking-glass,
Footsteps in the street,
Over, under, to and fro,
The lean blades meet;
Bay Rum or Bear's Grease,
A silver groat to pay --
Then out a-shin-shan-shining
In the bright, blue day.
