All I know is a door into the dark.Outside, old axles and iron hoops rusting; Inside, the hammered anvil's short-pitched ring, The unpredictable fantail of sparksOr hiss when a new shoe toughens in water.The anvil must be somewhere in the centre, Horned as a unicorn, at one end square, Set there immoveable: an altarWhere he expends himself in shape and music.Sometimes, leather-aproned, hairs in his nose, He leans out on the jamb, recalls a clatterOf hoofs where traffic is flashing in rows; Then grunts and goes in, with a slam and a flickTo beat real iron out, to work the bellows.
