Subject(s): Cities; Urban Life


For all they see, the stars might never glow
Nor burning Systems whirl their dust through space.
For all they hear, fountains might never flow
Nor bees rush, humming, through green clover lace.
For all they breathe, the honeysuckle vine
Never might spill her sweetness down the lane,
High cliffs be odorous with the tang of pine,
Nor salt winds caper from the cloud-flecked main.
For all they feel, the storm need never break,
The burgeoning hawthorn foam with red in spring,
The sunset die in fire, the mountain wake
To purple-misted dawn, the oriole sing.
Yet how they seek, where tower walls are dense,
Fragrance and light, and food for every sense!
