Excerpt: Among School Children // I // I WALK through the long schoolroom questioning; // A kind old nun in a white hood replies; // The children learn to cipher and to sing, // To study reading-books and histories, // To cut and sew, be neat in everything // In the best modern way - the children's eyes // In momentary wonder stare upon // A sixty-year-old smiling public man. // I dream of a Ledaean body, bent // Above a sinking fire. a tale that she // Told of a harsh reproof, or trivial event // That changed some childish day to tragedy - // Told, and it seemed that our two natures blent // Into a sphere from youthful sympathy, // Or else, to alter Plato's parable, // Into the yolk and white of the one shell.
