THE EDGE OF THE WIND, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Ye stars in ye skies seem twinkling
Last Line: And ye crickets cease to sing.
Alternate Author Name(s): Johnson Of Boone, Benj. F.
Subject(s): Light; Stars; Wind


YE stars in ye skies seem twinkling
In icicles of light,
And ye edge of ye wind cuts keener
Than ever ye sword-edge might;
Ye footsteps crunch in ye courtway,
And ye trough and ye cask go "ping!" --
Ye china cracks in ye pantry,
And ye crickets cease to sing.
