TOWN, by            
First Line: We have propped ourselves against
Last Line: To shut it out.
Subject(s): Towns


We have propped ourselves against
The crowd, and grown afraid
Of wings, and starlight, and the things
We have not made.

So do we speed the slow blue birth
Of night with lights, and take
Neat paving-stones to hide the earth
We could not make.

And since there comes, if silence falls,
A sudden splash of doubt,
We fashion drums and wheels and walls
To shut it out.
