The hollow night amid,
Then on my tongue the taste is sour
Of all I ever did."

I’ve got no mind to worry?
Close my eyes and drift away.”

“We’d stopped to look inside before
The windows of the other stores
But at this one here we stayed awhile
We stood to stare, and wish, and smile.”

Sharp as a knife

The conundrum of genius”
