TWO OF A TRADE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The dragon-fly and I together
Last Line: And I at the oars, our course to hold.
Subject(s): Nature; Summer


THE dragon-fly and I together
Sail up the stream in the summer weather;
He at the stern all green and gold,
And I at the oars, our course to hold.

Above the floor of the level river
The bent blades dip and spring and quiver;
And the dragon-fly is here and there,
Along the water and in the air.

And thus we go as the sunshine mellows;
A pair of Nature's merriest fellows;
For the Spanish cedar is light and true,
And instead of one, it has carried two.

And thus we sail without care or sorrow,
With trust for to-day and hope for tomorrow;
He at the stern, all green and gold,
And I at the oars, our course to hold.
