dew-cloth, dream drapery | by -justk-
Back to group

dew-cloth, dream drapery

low-anchored cloud,

newfoundland air,

fountain head and source of rivers,

dew-cloth, dream drapery,

and napkin spread by fays;

drifting meadow of the air,

where bloom the dasied banks and violets,

and in whose fenny labyrinth

the bittern booms and heron wades;

spirit of the lake and seas and rivers,

bear only purfumes and the scent

of healing herbs to just men's fields!


~mist~ by Henry David Thoreau
