THE EMBANKMENT, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Once, in finesse of fiddles found I ecstasy
Last Line: That I may fold it round me and in comfort lie.
Alternate Author Name(s): Hulme, T. E.


Once, in finesse of fiddles found I ecstasy,
In the flash of gold heels on the hard pavement.
Now see I
That warmth's the very stuff of poesy.
Oh, God, make small
The old star-eaten blanket of the sky,
That I may fold it round me and in comfort lie.
