Alfred Kreymborg, ed.  Others for 1919.  1920.
 
Stars
By Evelyn Scott
 
LIKE naked maidens
Dancing with no thought of lovers,
Blinking stars with dewy silver breasts
Pass through the darkness.
White and eager,        5
They glide on,
Toward the grey meshed web of dawn,
And the mystery of morning.
 
Then,
About me,        10
The white cloud walls
Stand as sternly as sepulchres,
And from all sides,
Peer and linger the startled faces,
Pale in the harshness of the sunlight.        15
