EGG-AND-DART, by            
First Line: This never-ended searching for the eyes
Last Line: Then the droll recommencement of the search.
Subject(s): Eyes; Hope; Optimism


This never-ended searching for the eyes
Wherein the unasked question's answer lies;
This beating, beating, beating of the heart
Because a contour seems to fit the part;
The long, drear moment of the look that spoils
The little bud of hope; the word that soils
The pact immaculate, so newly born;
The noisy silence of the old self-scorn;
These, and the sudden leaving in the lurch;
Then the droll recommencement of the search.
