And there is no object so soft but it makes a hub for the wheel'd universe
Let us stand side by side in our nighttime simplicities,
in our humble shapes, our several soft colours.
Let the trees reach and the stars be clear
and the moon bend gently above us.
Let even our irritable antennae be for once lit and innocent,
as if made by a young child with large eyes and wide mind,
while a confident cat walks the gray and subtle surface of things,
