Amy Lowell - A London Thoroughfare. 2 A.M. lyrics

They have watered the street,
It shines in the glare of lamps,
Cold, white lamps,
And lies
Like a slow-moving river,
Barred with silver and black.
Cabs go down it,
One,
And then another.
Between them I hear the shuffling of feet.
Tramps doze on the window-ledges,
Night-walkers pa** along the sidewalks.
The city is squalid and sinister,
With the silver-barred street in the midst,
Slow-moving,
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/amy-lowell/sword-blades-and-poppy-seed/a-london-thoroughfare-2-a-m.html]
A river leading nowhere.

Opposite my window,
The moon cuts,
Clear and round,
Through the plum-coloured night.
She cannot light the city;
It is too bright.
It has white lamps,
And glitters coldly.

I stand in the window and watch the moon.
She is thin and lustreless,
But I love her.
I know the moon,
And this is an alien city.
