THE ROSE AND THE WIND

Yesterday

The rose danced with the wind

 

Many thought it ridiculous

What! with the restlessness of the Wind

And the placid abiding of the Rose

 

But O, the sight remains in my mind still

Of an improbable dream come true

 

For it was just a day ago

When the ubiquitous, shapeless,

Formless Wind

 

Together with the beautiful, shapely, scented

Stationary, thorny, Rose

 

Hand in hand and

Heart to heart as only they could

 

Yes it was yesterday

When the skies lent the moon for lights

While the stars sprinkled the earth showers of golden sparks

 

Then, the Rose,

Danced with the Wind.
