A CHRONICLE, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: All about the blown wind's ways
Last Line: Are my shadows near it.
Subject(s): Shadows

All about the blown wind's ways,
Never unbelieving,
With a mellow, antique grace,
And triumphant grieving,—

Came across the meadow,
Went beyond the hill,
Thin as any shadow,
Passed my chronicle.

Earth writes the epitaph,
Rain and leaves wear it: —
Eyes to see, lips to laugh,
Are my shadows near it.
