“City, The“
   Poem (45 lines in 9 stanzas); probably written in the fall of 1919. First published in Vagrant(October 1919); rpt. WT(July 1950).
   The narrator finds himself in a strange but splendid city and strives to remember when and how he had known it before; finally a revelation comes to him and he “flew from the knowledge of terrors forgotten and dead.”
