He Made This Screen

He Made This Screen

not of silver nor of coral,
But of weatherbeaten laurel.

Here, he introduced a sea
Uniform like tapestry;

Here, a fig-tree; there, a face;
There, a dragon circling space

Designating here, a bower;
There, a pointed passion-flower.



Poem He Made This Screen - Marianne Moore
