the horizon is encircled with them
where they are set like jewels against

Our signal lights* are not calls for

homes, and mark the places that are
almost »acred ground where men and
women, with their children are living

at the windows where the lamps shine,
one would see tired faces, lined with

every-day life, but aglow with the en
