POEM: THE NEST
That was the skylark we heard
Singing so high,
The little quivering bird
We saw, and the sky.
The earth was drenched with sun,
The sky was drenched with song;
We lay in the grass and listened,
Long and long and long.
I said, "What a spell it is
Has made her rise
To pour out her world of bliss
In that world of skies!"
You said, "What a spell must pass
Between sky and plain,
Since she finds in this world of grass
Her nest again!"
