Berket and the Stars
- A day on the boulevards chosen out of ten years of
- student poverty! One best day out of ten good ones.
- Berket in high spirits--"Ha, oranges! Let's have one!"
- And he made to snatch an orange from the vender's cart.
- Now so clever was the deception, so nicely timed
- to the full sweep of certain wave summits,
- that the rumor of the thing has come down through
- three generations--which is relatively forever!
