The Dawn

Staying at Home
Back to Issue

I would be as ignorant as the dawn,
That has looked down
On that old queen measuring a town
With the pin of a brooch,
Or on the withered men that saw
From their pedantic Babylon
The careless planets in their courses,
The stars fade out where the moon comes,
And took their tablets and made sums -
Yet did but look, rocking the glittering coach
Above the cloudy shoulders of the horses.
I would be - for no knowledge is worth a straw -
Ignorant and wanton as the dawn.
