127. A Town Window
BEYOND my window in the night 
  Is but a drab inglorious street, 
Yet there the frost and clean starlight 
  As over Warwick woods are sweet. 
Under the grey drift of the town         5
  The crocus works among the mould 
As eagerly as those that crown 
  The Warwick spring in flame and gold. 
And when the tramway down the hill 
  Across the cobbles moans and rings,  10
There is about my window-sill 
  The tumult of a thousand wings.
