Central Park at Dusk
By Sara Teasdale
BUILDINGS above the leafless trees
  Loom high as castles in a dream,
While one by one the lamps come out
  To thread the twilight with a gleam.
There is no sign of leaf or bud,        5
  A hush is over everything—
Silent as women wait for love,
  The world is waiting for the spring.
