The poet breathes and lives the song he makes.
He owns a heart that moves by lonely lakes
where wild things are, where wind-whipped waves come in
To tumble on the pebbles.
Hill and linn
To him are things intangible, yet real;
Rude in the only beauty that can steal
Across the heart before he is aware.
He cannot see -- yet knows that it is there.
He wraps his heart around the silent song
And walks in sunlit morning all day long.
