All I know is a door into the dark                                                                                                           Outside, old axes and iron hoops rusting;                                                                                           Inside, the hammered anvil’s short-pitched ring,                                                                                 The unpredictable fantail of sparks                                                                                                               Or hiss when a new shoe toughens in water.                                                                                         73 more words
