John Grey‘s poem: Morning on campus

The mist is first to waken,

clings to grass,

and bottom steps

of buildings older than the country.

Sand-coloured sunlight

breaks thinly through long shadows/

Mock-Venetian stone facades resist the shine

but red-brick buildings glow.

Wind blows back and forth

across the quadrangle.

Gray trees mop up the lingering damp.
