Subject(s): Sabbath; Sunday


Sabbath comes to a small town
Like an old hound
After an all-night chase,
And only the sparrows under the eaves
Break the silence at dawn,
Or the wind squeezing under the door.
The cattle stand dozing,
Heads down at sunrise;
And at intervals,
Like a guard blowing reveille,
A windmill grates,
Shrill in the wind.
The hens and pullets dart everywhere,
And the sparrows along the eaves
Keep a ceaseless gossip running,
Like old women together after church.
