On the sign:
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.
