Read "November Twilight" at The Eldritch Dark:
This short poem from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) has an interesting directional pattern between the two stanzas. In the first stanza, a "ruby-hearted star" is illuminating "November's winy sunset leaves".
In the second stanza, a "ghostly faint perfume" of roses ascends, heading in the opposite direction from the starlight described in the opening stanza.
Take together, those alternate patterns of movement give this short work a nice symmetry of content that matches the dual stanza structure.
