A Glimpse

Part of the cluster CALAMUS.


A GLIMPSE, through an interstice caught, Of a crowd of workmen and drivers in a bar-room,  
 around the stove, late of a winter night—And I  
 unremark'd, seated in a corner;
  [ begin page 139 ]ppp.00473.139.jpg Of a youth who loves me, and whom I love, silently  
 approaching, and seating himself near, that he  
 may hold me by the hand;
A long while, amid the noises of coming and going—  
 of drinking and oath and smutty jest,
There we two, content, happy in being together,  
 speaking little, perhaps not a word.

Part of the cluster CALAMUS.
