         IN THE GARDEN

In flower-hung cathedral,
Down clover-scented aisle,
The ants, unblessed and busy,
Are racing single-file.

Beneath the jewelled arches
Of bridal wreath and fern
They hurry toward tomorrow
With desperate concern.

Not side by side like brothers,
Not two by two they fare,
But each alone and burdened
With more than he can bear.
