I think of you — A picture framed in sombre trees, Eyes where a gleam of sky breaks through Grey days on summer seas. The Western wind, That runs the prairies like a flame, Bears in his fragrant garments twined A whisper of your name. Then do you send A blown kiss in the wind's long hair, And though I sleep at the world's end Yet will it find me there.
