  1. The Hollow Men.
  2. We are the hollow men
  3. We are the stuffed men
  4. Leaning together
  5. Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
  6. Our dried voices, when
  7. We whisper together
  8. Are quiet and meaningless
  9. As wind in dry grass
  10. Or rats' feet over broken glass
  11. in our dry cellar
  12. Shape without form, shade without colour,
  13. Paralysed force, gesture without motion;
  14. Those who have crossed
  15. With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom
  16. Remember us --- if at all --- not as lost
  17. Violent souls, but only
  18. As the hollow men
  19. The stuffed men.
  20. Eyes I dare not meet in dreams
  21. In death's dream kingdom

  23. There, the eyes are
  24. Sunlight on a broken column
  25. There, is a tree swinging
  26. And voices are
  27. In the wind's singing
  28. More distant and more solemn

  36. Behaving as the wind behaves
  37. No nearer ---
  38. Not that final meeting
  39. In the twilight kingdom
  40. This is the dead land
  41. This is cactus land
  42. Here the stone images
  43. Are raised, here they receive
  44. The supplication of a dead man's hand
  45. Under the twinkle of a fading star.
  46. Is it like this
  47. In death's other kingdom
  48. Waking alone
  49. At the hour when we are
  50. Trembling with tenderness
  51. Lips that would kiss
  52. Form prayers to broken stone.
  53. The eyes are not here
  54. There are no eyes here
  55. In this valley of dying stars
  56. In this hollow valley
  57. This broken jaw of our lost kingdoms
  58. In this last of meeting places
  59. We grope together
  60. And avoid speech
  61. Gathered on this beach of the tumid river

  79. Between the conception
  80. And the creation
  81. Between the emotion
  82. And the response
  83. Falls the Shadow
  84. Life is very long
  85. Between the desire
  86. And the spasm
  87. Between the potency
  88. And the existence
  89. Between the essence
  90. And the descent
  91. Falls the Shadow
  92. For Thine is the Kingdom
  93. For Thine is
