TWO SKIES, by                    
First Line: A sky above, a sky below
Last Line: Than ever can be the high proud star.
Subject(s): Sky; Stars; Summer

A SKY above, a sky below,
Round my boat, I'm drifting so,
Hanging, drifting, two between,
Swaying like the living green.

The sky above is blue and high—
I cannot reach it though I try;
My sky below is sweeter far—
A water-lily is its star.

And I shall trail my hand outside,
And touch my near sky as I ride,
Touch the lily, friendlier far,
Than ever can be the high proud star.
