The Train Leaves at Eight by The Walkabouts
A gloomy composition of Mikis Theodorakis.
and here a gloomy poem of Pound:
The girl in the tea shop
is not so beautiful as she was,
The August has worn against her.
She does not get up the stairs so eagerly;
Yes, she also will turn middle-aged,
And the glow of youth that she spread about us
as she brought us our muffins
Will be spread about us no longer.
She also will turn middle-aged.
