Kansas City Beautiful ~ Poems About the Places We Love

Drawings by Esther Boquist.

MARBLE SEAT

There's beauty in the quiet street,
In arch of sky, in wind at play,
Where twilight drapery of gray,
Star clasped, enfolds a cool retreat.

Within wrought gates, a marble seat
Faces a fountain's tinkling spray;
The bench, hand carved in quaint array,
Shrub hidden, holds a charm complete.

Come, linger in this sylvan place,
Beneath the splendor of the night;
While weariness departs in flight,
As peace descends with quiet grace.

Here shadows dimly interlace
Above the lions embossed in white;
Oh, raise your heart to that high light
Of thoughts, these lovely things embrace.
