Portrait of a Lady, T.S. Eliot

Among the smoke and fog of a December afternoon
You have the scene arrange itself — as it will seem to do—
With « I have saved this afternoon for you »;
And four wax candles in the darkened room,
Four rings of light upon the ceiling overhead

T.S. Eliot, excerpt from Portrait of a Lady, first published in the magazine Others: A Magazine of the New Verse (1915)
