The tulip bed is flaming in the square,
Crimson and lovely against the dim, green trees;
The yellow sunlight over it
Makes a picture like an old Dutch print.

If I could find a little peace
Away from clatter and the click of keys --
Where I could have the cool earth close to me,
I might find Thee also nearer
Than in this high tower where I stand.
