Moving from left to left, the light

is heavy on the Dome, and coarse.

One small lunette turns it aside

and blankly stares off to the side

like a big white old wall-eyed horse.



On the east steps the Air Force Band

in uniforms of Air Force blue

is playing hard and loud, but--queer--

the music doesn't quite come through.



It comes in snatches, dim then keen,

then mute, and yet there is no breeze.

The giant trees stand in between.

I think the trees must intervene,



catching the music in their leaves

like gold-dust, till each big leaf sags.

Unceasingly the little flags

feed their limp stripes into the air,

and the band's efforts vanish there.



Great shades, edge over,

give the music room.

The gathered brasses want to go

boom--boom.
