    I enjoyed the opening stanza.... So realistic! When there is only faint light one feels the rotund chair tops and the hulk of the table while proceeding to the balcony.... The mist covered sky being compared to a white washed canvas is a great image and the hills and trees slowly emerging from cover is beautiful!

    That obscuring veil of mist becomes
    A diaphanous gauze of translucence,
    Asserting hill-crest and hill-rock
    Along my trans-urban horizon.

    A picturesque description of the scenery watched through a diaphanous gauze of mist!

The world is coeval with me.
When I was young it was young;
There was a needless lilt
In the tilt of a butterfly.
There was a random rain of events,
Which did not have to make sense.

When I was middle-aged the world middled;
It kept up with my sogginess.
