    As she laughed I was aware of becoming involved in her laughter
    Make-Believe Worldhas quoted5 years ago
    And would it have been worth it, after all,
    Would it have been worth while,
    After the sunsets and the dooryards and the sprinkled streets,
    After the novels, after the teacups, after the skirts that trail along the
    floor—
    And this, and so much more?—
    It is impossible to say just what I mean!
    But as if a magic lantern threw the nerves in patterns on a screen:
    Would it have been worth while
    If one, settling a pillow or throwing off a shawl,
    And turning toward the window, should say:
    "That is not it at all,
    That is not what I meant, at all."

    I am no prophet—and here's no great matter
    Make-Believe Worldhas quoted5 years ago
    I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
    Make-Believe Worldhas quoted5 years ago
    Do I dare
    Disturb the universe?
    Make-Believe Worldhas quoted5 years ago
    There will be time to murder and create

    Let us go then, you and I,
    When the evening is spread out against the sky
    Like a patient etherized upon a table;
    Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets,
    The muttering retreats
    Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels
    And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells:
    Streets that follow like a tedious argument
    Of insidious intent
    To lead you to an overwhelming question ...
    Oh, do not ask, "What is it?"
    Let us go and make our visit.
