I am intrigued by A E Housman’s “The Fairies Break Their Dances”. Perhaps the poem refers to the young man having spent the evening gambling and, in the dawn being confronted by the harsh reality that he must settle his debts. Alternatively the fairies could be seen as ladies with whom the young man has spent a night of passion (maybe prostitutes)? In short I don’t know what the poem means!
“The fairies break their dances and leave the printed lawn, and up from India glances the silver sail of dawn.
The candles burn their sockets, the blinds let through the day, the young man feels his pockets and wonders what’s to pay”.
