On the sign:
LOVERS
From somewhere over the houses, through the silence,
Through the late night, come windy ripples of music.
There’s a lighted cigarette-end in the black street,
Moving beside the music he has brought her.
Behind a shuttered window, there’s a girl
Smiling into her pillow. And now by her hand
There’s a candle lighted and put out again.
And the shadow of a bird leaves its perch for a smaller twig.

-Witter Bynner

Comments:
Berklee’s poetry Walk was laid in October 2003 along Edison Street between Shattuck and Milvia Streets. The route includes 128 metal plates with excerpts from songs, each of which is related in one way or another to the city of Berkeley.

The plaque features a poem by the American poet Witter Bynner (1881-1968) who taught poetry for a short period at Berkeley University.
