INTERLUDE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Sun-light recedes on the mountains, in long gold shafts
Last Line: On which he dreams.
Subject(s): Night; Bedtime


Sun-light recedes on the mountains, in long gold shafts,
Like the falling pillars of a temple.
Then singing silence almost too nimble for ears:
The mountain-tenors fling their broad voices
Into the blue hall of the sky,
And through a rigid column of these voices
Night dumbly walks.
Night, crushing sound between his fingers
Until it forms a lightly frozen couch
On which he dreams.
