Woman Awakening. Eva Gonzales. 1876.



Amy Lowell


Jolt of market-carts;

Steady drip of horses’ hoofs on the hard pavement;

A black sky lacquered over with blueness,

And the lights of the Battersea Bridge

Pricking pale in the dawn.

The beautiful hours are passing

And still you sleep!

Tired heart of my joy,

Incurved upon your dreams,

Will the day come before you have opened to me?
