    THE brawling of a sparrow in the
    eaves,
    The brilliant moon and all the milky
    sky,
    And all that famous harmony of leaves,
    Had blotted out man's image and his
    cry.
    A girl arose that had red mournful lips
    And seemed the greatness of the world
    in tears,
    Doomed like Odysseus and the
    labouring ships
    And proud as Priam murdered with his
    peers;
    Arose, and on the instant clamorous
    eaves,
    A climbing moon upon an empty sky,
    And all that lamentation of the leaves,
    Could but compose man's image and
    his cry.
