That action is a fashion
That bids its interior face
Receive a public eye;
For every tone of sensibility's range
Has its own design,
And the stamp of the house
Is but to its bearer known:
Display this mark
To fit another's measure
And diminished be,
Though but you can see.

When let go from pedestrian
Insensate necessity,
What remains
Is the plain organic
Present's lightness in sense--
That frame of air
And correspondent window
Twixt without and within.
