WHERE YOUR FEET GO, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Where your feet go no wind stirs
Last Line: On my lids the gradual seal.
Subject(s): Dreams; Nature; Sleep; Wind; Nightmares


Where your feet go no wind stirs,
No wind ruffles the chestnut boughs,
No wind ruffles the chestnut burrs;
Braided thick on your brows
Coils of great slow sunlight drowse.

Your eyes against their lashes dream
As birds through covert gazing deep:
Mother of the tawny gleam,
And the silence the hills keep,
And the amber depth of sleep.

Shield me with your languorousness;
Let my heavy spirit feel
Feet, hair, eyes flame downward; press
On my heart the glittering heel,
On my lids the gradual seal.
