Excerpt

A Song in Chinese Tapestries

"How, how," he said. "Friend Chang," I said,

"San Francisco sleeps as the dead--

Ended license, lust and play:

Why do you iron the night away?

Your big clock speaks with a deadly sound,

With a tick and a wail till dawn comes round.

While the monster shadows glower and creep,

What can be better for man than sleep?"
