from Behind this Mask
Out from behind this bending rough-cut mask,
These lights and shades,
this drama of the whole,
This common curtain of the face
contain'd in me for me,
in you for you,
in each for each.
(Tragedies, sorrows, laughter, tears - O heaven!
The passionate teeming plays this curtain hid!)
