PREDESTINATION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: There is no peace for the blowing leaf
Last Line: That he shapes his ways to his own desire.
Subject(s): Fate; Predestination; Destiny


THERE is no peace for the blowing leaf,
The end of his journey he never knows:
He lifts from the ground with an upward heave
Or settles, as lulls the wind or blows.

And he ever pretends to his traveling friends
Mottled with crimson, dappled with fire,
That he knows the country to which he wends,
That he shapes his ways to his own desire.
