WHITE MAGIC, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: All the things that call a man to the road's delight
Last Line: By the long white road.
Subject(s): Comfort; Silence

All the things that call a man to the road's delight,
All the magic wonder things—shine forth white!

These are the glamours
Thrilling the roamers,
White sails bellying
And milk-white combers;

A snow-white glory
Where the forefoot lunges,
And a white, white wake
Where the white gull plunges.

Or the long white road
That is never ended
Where the sun's white light
And the dust are blended;

Mountains that shimmer
With their white peaks rearing,
And death white deserts
With their hot sands searing;

But my love's round arms
That softly fold me
Make fair white magic
And so they hold me

To a quiet comfort
And a warm abode
In a snug white cottage
By the long white road.
