The Whitsun Weddings1962Walking around in the park
Should feel better than work:
The lake, the sunshine,
The grass to lie on,Blurred playground noises
Beyond black-stockinged nurses -
Not a bad place to be.
Yet it doesn't suit me.Being one of the men
You meet of an afternoon:
Palsied old step-takers,
Hare-eyed clerks with the jitters,Waxed-fleshed out-patients
Still vague from accidents,
And characters in long coats
Deep in the litter-baskets -All dodging the toad work
By being stupid or weak.
Think of being them!
Hearing the hours chime,Watching the bread delivered,
The sun by clouds covered,
The children going home;
Think of being them,Turning over their failures
By some bed of lobelias,
Nowhere to go but indoors,
Nor friends but empty chairs -No, give me my in-tray,
My loaf-haired secretary,
What else can I answer,When the lights come on at four
At the end of another year?
Give me your arm, old toad;
Help me down Cemetery Road.
