ALL THIS, by            
First Line: There was a feather of a wind
Last Line: Has kept my faith safely in place.


There was a feather of a wind
For youth and me who never sinned.

There was a dream in high-cocked hat ...
A star-tail swinging to my mat.

There was a world within my eye,
And love, in lace and plume, to die.

All this for youth and me, but now
Thorns of experience scar my brow.

The wind ... a gale of icy thrust --
The dream ... long crumbled into dust

The star-tail ... ragged, sharp-edged, curled,
And my eye blinded by the world.

But O, love, wearing plume and lace
Has kept my faith safely in place.
