Plaques.

Leaving the park I saw the blue medallion Honouring a rich man's wall, 'Ford Maddox Ford', Semi-blinded by a flock of ivy trundling Across its face -- no lesser charm for that. See how the speeding clouds remap the moon.

I recalled 'A. A. Milne', 'The Silver Studios', 'Coleridge' down a railwayside at dusk Above a glimpse of drawing room, with books And someone there, below, a valleyed Might of track, tall, fantastic ladders

Fastened on the earth, and childhood verges Where we used to play and pick those wild White blooms the shape of pixie hats, That threaded meshing with their paltry necks Transcending, as the risen names transcend.
