You can listen to two recitations of the poem below and read along with the text…
By Lola Ridge
Out of the lamp-bestarred and clouded dusk -
Snaring, illuding, concealing,
Magically conjuring –
Turning to fairy-coaches
Scampering under the great Arch –
Making a decoy of blue overalls
And mystery of a scarlet shawl –
Knowing no impediment of its sure advance –
Descends the fog.
