The Village Street

And Other Poems
A collection of poems by

When up and down the street The pavements have grown soft with yellow light, And garden airs are sweet. Wait for a wind that moves bo lazily It hardly lifts the scent Of honeysuckle or acacia tree With golden blossoms bent. Wait till the red geraniums on the wall A re dim beneath the blue Of the steep shadow, and the elm trees tall Take on a dusky hue. Then out of sacred silence, early or late, Be sure a song will flower, For there is music somewhere, if we wait. Yes, in the quiet hour.
