Looking out through a narrow pane
of glass in the larger window
I saw how the scene came closer
like the ones Van Gogh isolated
in his perspective frame.

Look Up – Raymond McDaniel

Recuerdo – Edna St. Vincent Millay

We were very tired, we were very merry—
We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.

But we looked into a fire, we leaned across a table,
We lay on a hill-top underneath the moon;
And the whistles kept blowing, and the dawn came
soon.
