AFTER READING 'THE GOLDEN TREASURY' IN THE GREEN PARK, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Off piccadilly with its pavement cries
Last Line: We too, much-wandering, hail this hour of peace!
Subject(s): Green Park, London; Poetry & Poets


OFF Piccadilly with its pavement cries,
Its maddening monotone of wheel and hoof,
In the Green Park primeval Summer lies,
How near, how yearning, yet how far aloof!
O city, symbol of a world that still
Heedless of beauty under heaven rolls;
And thou, blithe meadow all with larks athrill
Like Poetry, that pasture of great souls—
Ye twain, so sundered, shall forever dwell,
A tumult and a blessing side by side:
Here, as to toil-worn Argo once befell
A singing island on a thundering tide,
Where men might stretch them out in glad release,
We too, much-wandering, hail this hour of peace!
