STRAWBERRIES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: We wandered in the woodland dim
Last Line: The baby's drumming with his spoon.
Subject(s): Strawberries

With voice of silence,
Bejeweled with the golden stars,
With its spread fan, the tree
What dance, this?
What rain-cloud hath it seen
In the sky of night's intangibility?
I wooed her by the sapphire sea,
And heard the mating bluebird pipe
A prescience full of joy to me.

And when the wedding bells rang free,
And all our thoughts flowed on like rhyme,
The blush was on the strawberry —
The strawberry was in its prime.

Two years have swiftly flown since then —
Two happy years — once more the birds
And strawberries are in the glen,
That heard of love our whispered words.

The honeysuckle freights the breeze,
The garden blows rose-red with June,
And on his plate of strawberries
The baby's drumming with his spoon.

What dream-peacock, this moon.
