Then read the poem:
AFTER a year I came again to the place;
The tireless lights and the reverberation,
The angry thunder of trains that burrow the ground,
The hunted, hurrying people were still the same—
But oh, another man beside me and not you!
Another voice and other eyes in mine!
And suddenly I turned and saw again
The gleaming curve of tracks, the bridge above—
They were burned deep into my heart before,
The night I watched them to avoid your eyes,
When you were saying, "Oh, look up at me!"
When you were saying, "Will you never love me?"
And when I answered with a lie. Oh then
You dropped your eyes. I felt your utter pain.
I would have died to say the truth to you.
After a year I came again to the place—
The hunted hurrying people were still the same….


At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.

If not, why then, this parting was well made.

Though I doubt anyone would write a poem like this with my local subway in mind (the laughing stock known as Washington Metro), here's my take.

Thank you Elanor and Lee Ann. :thumbs:

Thanks Matthew, I though the Washington Metro very interesting when the family visited many years ago.
