November in the Park
By Dorothy Dudley
  THE LAMPS hang low in the silent park—
A hundred milk-white moons;
The trees weep gently in the dark
In dim festoons;
The trees reach outward upward        5
Long dark arms
In tearful dancing and in prayer.
The small pond bares to drifting skies
The furtive charms
Of her silver eyes,        10
And lies where white paths gleam around
Like something rare:
For Beauty and Romance have drowned
A princess there.
