The head is emptier than the sun

When agnostic clouds ‘stead silver

Cast in shadows the thinker’s path

Twixt true belief and faithless doubt,

Though still within light, now doubled.

 

Such heads lean surer than the sun

When skies are shown alone

Draw clear the shadows of the ground

‘Tween a warm face and rear tree-shade

The difference of light to less, there.
