    From New Poems (1916).

    O stiffly shapen houses that change not,
    What conjuror's cloth was thrown across you, and raised
    To show you thus transfigured, changed,
    Your stuff all gone, your menace almost rased?

    Such resolute shapes, so harshly set
    In hollow blocks and cubes deformed, and heaped
    In void and null profusion, how is this?
    In what strong aqua regia now are you steeped?

    That you lose the brick-stuff out of you
    And hover like a presentment, fading faint
    And vanquished, evaporate away
    To leave but only the merest possible taint!
