Transcript of The Winter Evening Settles Down

The Winter Evening Settles Down
With the smell of steaks in passageways
And newspapers from vacant lots
Six o'clock
The burnt out ends of smoky days
And now a gusty shower wraps
The grimy scraps
Of withered leaves about your feet
The Winter Evening Settles Down
By: T.S. Eliot

On broken blinds and chimney-pots
A lonely cab horse steams and stamps
And then the lighting of the lamps
The winter evening settles down
With smell of steaks in passageways.
Six o'clock.
The burnt-out ends of smoky days.
And now a gusty shower wraps
The grimy scraps
Of withered leaves about your feet
And newspapers from vacant lots;
The showers beat
On broken blinds and chimney-pots,
And at the corner of the street
A lonely cab-horse steams and stamps.

And then the lighting of the lamps.
