    • POEM: The Listeners by Walter de la Mare (10/27/2007 8:24:00 PM)

      To each their own, but I am a little disappointed that this gem is not rated much much higher. I bet every one ends up reading it more than once.. for it forces you to imagine the atmosphere and the mystery.. and make your own interpretations.

      Here's a tribute from T.S Eliot to De la Mare and the mystery of the nocturnal traveller...

      http: //

      .......... ........
      .......... ........

      When the nocturnal traveller can arouse
      No sleeper by his call; or when by chance
      An empty face peers from an empty house;

      By whom, and by what means, was this designed?
      The whispered incantation which allows
      Free passage to the phantoms of the mind?

      By you; by those deceptive cadences
      Wherewith the common measure is refined;
      By conscious art practised with natural ease;

      By the delicate, invisible web you wove -
      The inexplicable mystery of sound.
