T. S. Eliot (1910)
|The winter evening settles down
With smell of steaks in passageways.
The burnt-out ends of smoky days.
|And now a gusty shower wraps
The grimy scraps
Of withered leaves about your feet
And newspapers from vacant lots;
The showers beat
|On broken blinds and chimney-pots,
And at the corner of the street
A lonely cab-horse steams and stamps.
|And then the lighting of the lamps.|
NO PLAGIARISM! I WILL REPORT IT!
