🌾 Today’s Poem ~ On a Street Corner

On a Street Corner

William A. Morris

But all the time you spoke I did not hear

The words you said. I only heard a far

Faint sound of summer waters and a clear

Calling of music from some lonely star.

I thought I heard the lisp of falling dew

In a dark meadow where no breezes stirred….

Then all at once the noisy street, and you

Smiling at me because I had not heard!
