A Slant of Sun on Dull Brown Walls

A slant of sun on dull brown walls, 
A forgotten sky of bashful blue. 

Toward God a mighty hymn, 
A song of collisions and cries, 
Rumbling wheels, hoof-beats, bells, 
Welcomes, farewells, love-calls, final moans, 
Voices of joy, idiocy, warning, despair, 
The unknown appeals of brutes, 
The chanting of flowers, 
The screams of cut trees, 
The senseless babble of hens and wise men - 
A cluttered incoherency that says at the stars: 
'O God, save us!'
