A TOWN WINDOW, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Beyond my window in the night
Last Line: The tumult of a thousand wings.
Subject(s): Towns


Beyond my window in the night
Is but a drab inglorious street,
Yet there the frost and clean starlight
As over Warwick woods are sweet.

Under the grey drift of the town
The crocus works among the mould
As eagerly as those that crown
The Warwick spring in flame and gold.

And when the tramway down the hill
Across the cobbles moans and rings,
There is about my window-sill
The tumult of a thousand wings.
