The Fog
By Lola Ridge

Out of the lamp-bestarred and clouded dusk –Claude_Monet_wiki
Snaring, illuding, concealing,
Magically conjuring –
Turning to fairy-coaches
Beetle-backed limousines
Scampering under the great Arch –
Making a decoy of blue overalls
And mystery of a scarlet shawl –
Indolently –
Knowing no impediment of its sure advance –
Descends the fog.

1st Recording by Maria Kasper
