How noteless Men, and Pleiads, stand,
Until a sudden sky
Reveals the fact that One is rapt
Forever from the Eye—
 
Members of the Invisible,

In Leagueless Opportunity,
O’ertakenless, as the Air—
 
Why didn’t we detain Them?
The Heavens with a smile,
Sweep by our disappointed Heads
Without a syllable—
