Several small houses Discreetly separated by foliage And the night— Maintaining their several identities By light Which fills the inside of each— Not as masses they stand But as walls Enclosing and excluding Like shawls About little old women— What mystery hides within What curiosity lurks without One the other Knows nothing about.
