THE SKY-GYPSY, by                    
First Line: I long / to sweep the sky
Last Line: On some strange shore.
Subject(s): Dreams; Night; Seashore; Nightmares; Bedtime; Beach; Coast; Shore

I long
To sweep the sky
On the shoulders of the
Night-wind, in search of hidden stars
And purple mist.

I pray
For wings of birds
That glisten in sunlight,
And flutter over black hilltops
Scattering songs.

I go
Alone, dreaming
Where spurting winds steal great
Blue-sheets of ocean tide roaring
On some strange shore.
