First Line: Around these city towers there churns

Alternate Author Name(s): Gilkyson, Walter, Mrs.
Subject(s): Storms; Wind

AROUND these city towers there churns
And swirls a sea of cloud,
Wind-driven—torn to lace—to ferns
Of foam,—and breaking loud
Along these crags, the lighted tall
Dark edges of the long sky-wall.

In our caverns of dim air
Hidden dark and deep,
We can never be aware
Of strong-pulsed winds, that keep
The cloud-foam flung to upper skies,
An eddying whiteness to our eyes.

In these streets of quiet dark,
We can only know
That some star with liquid spark,
Moving very low
To a place where clouds are thin,
Passing over, glances in.
