Faces at windows, dismayed behind lace curtains, Faces of the unadventurous and meek; Faces of the arrogant, walking where angels wince; Faces of country cousins, town truants, anxious aunts: The face of a typist, Helen, in glum suburban beauty, Once seen in a cobwebbed moment, always remebered: Faces of the dead, the mask serene, contorted: The living face of poetry, the all-enduring image.
