O BIRDS OF THE AIR, by             Poet's Biography
Last Line: We build no house but the grave!
Subject(s): Houses; Birds; Graves


O birds of the air''"
''aWild birds, buoyant, vagabond, light''"
Streams may have taught you a stave;
''aBut how are ye born so sure of your flight
Hence over worlds of the wave?
''aWhose mind remembers in yours as it weaves
''aSubtlest of houses to sway with the leaves?
''aWe have forgotten the land out of sight''"
We build no house but the grave!
