Alfred Kreymborg, ed.  Others for 1919.  1920.
 
Veils
By Witter Bynner
 
THIS veil
Of lavender and dawn
Floats off
Invisible,
And this of purple noon        5
Unwinds in wisdom,
And this of evening
Twitters, undulates,
Dips, darts,
And this of night        10
Circles around me singing
To the very edge and presence of the young moon—
And it brushes the tip
Like lips
Three times.        15
