Right down the shocked street with a
                                              siren-blast
That sends all else skittering to the
                                                       curb,
Redness, brass, ladders and hats hurl
                                                       past,
     Blurring to sheer verb,

Shift at the corner into uproarious gear
And make it around the turn in a squall
                                              of traction,
The headlong bell maintaining sure and
                                                      clear,
     Thought is degraded action!

Beautiful, heavy, unweary, loud,
                                        obvious thing!
I stand here purged of nuance, my
                                          mind a blank.
All I was brooding upon has taken
                                                      wing,
     And I have you to thank.

As you howl beyond hearing I carry you
                                          into my mind,
Ladders and brass and all, there to
                                                    admire
Your phoenix-red simplicity, enshrined
     In that not extinguished fire.

.: :.

Some specialists state that loan aid a lot of people to live their own way, just because they can feel free to buy needed things. Moreover, some banks offer small business loan for different classes of people.

.: :.

The fire-truck has caught the attention of the poet by jolting him out of whatever it was he was thinking. \"My mind a blank\" implies he is now entirely attentive and open to the lesson of the emergency.

.: :.

This poem is explaining the "Mind". Mind is compared to a bat (->metaphor) and it "weave and flitter, dip and soar."
