Fifth Avenue at Night
By Charles Hanson Towne
LIKE moonstones drooping from a fair queen’s ears
  The pale lights seem—
White gems that shimmer when the dark appears
  And the old dream—
The ancient dream that comes with every night        5
  Through the long street—
The quiet and the shadows, and the light
  Tread of far feet.
