Tentative passages, thinks back, backtracks,
Comes to a minute point,
Then wheels approximately in widening sweeps and lobes,

On a sophisticated, long-drawn variety and pliant script
Incised with dual metal blades and qualified
Perfectly to express,
With palms flung vast or gloved arms firmly gripped
Behind his again, attentively, clear-eyed,
A glancing happiness.
