    I Red Slippers Red slippers in a shop-window, and outside in the street, flaws of grey,windy sleet! Behind the polished glass, the slippers hang in long threads of red,festooning from the ceiling like stalactites of blood, flooding the eyesof passers-by … Continue reading

    The Swans (Amy Lowell Poems)

    In Excelsis (Amy Lowell Poems)

    You — you — Your shadow is sunlight on a plate of silver; Your footsteps, the seeding-place of lilies; Your hands moving, a chime of bells across a windless air. The movement of your hands is the long, golden running … Continue reading
