A Silver Wonder
written by William Henry Davies
From "Ambition", 1929 Link to further information




Shall I this night, amazed and full of wonder,
   Forget the Heavens and worship this new toy;
Shall I betray the stars and fall before
   A strange new Image, with a greater joy?
Caught in the searchlights' fingers, gleaming bright,
   A silver wonder, with a strange device,
Has made the stars, the great eternal stars,
   Peep out of their dark holes like timid mice!
