First Line: The world is spread with rough grained silk
Last Line: Flecked by the dim fire of giant stars.
Subject(s): Old Age; Silk


The world is spread with rough grained silk,
crumpled a little where the sky indents it
and cuts off the view.

The very old gods,
long since tired of northern lights
and seas too jeweled
and snows too glittering, --
tired, too, of men, --
the very old gods come here
in the late evening
to sit quietly on the warm gray silk
and rest their eyes
with milky opal tints
and the smoky blue
flecked by the dim fire of giant stars.
