MIST, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: Low-anchored cloud, / newfoundland air
Last Line: Of healing herbs to just men's fields.
Subject(s): Mist; Nature

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 daisied banks and violets
And in whose fenny labyrinth
The bittern booms and heron wades;
Spirit of lakes and seas and rivers, --
Bear only perfumes and the scent
Of healing herbs to just men's fields.
