Poetry of Amy Lowell
A Dome of Many-coloured Glass

Market Day

White, glittering sunlight fills the market square,
 Spotted and sprigged with shadows.  Double rows
 Of bartering booths spread out their tempting shows
Of globed and golden fruit, the morning air
Smells sweet with ripeness, on the pavement there
 A wicker basket gapes and overflows
 Spilling out cool, blue plums.  The market glows,
And flaunts, and clatters in its busy care.
 A stately minster at the northern side
Lifts its twin spires to the distant sky,
 Pinnacled, carved and buttressed; through the wide
Arched doorway peals an organ, suddenly --
 Crashing, triumphant in its pregnant tide,
Quenching the square in vibrant harmony.
