1The quiet snow
2Will splotch
3Each in the row of cedars
4With a fine
5And patient hand;
6Numb the harshness,
7Tangle of that swamp.
8It does not say, The sun
9Does these things another way.
10Even on hats of walkers,
11The air of noise
12And street-car ledges
13It does not know
14There should be hurry.
