Poem by Mathilde Blind


FLEETER than a tone scarce born
            That melts away,
Sweeter than a dream of morn
            That shuns the day,
Swifter than a rainbow fading out of sight:
Sucked away as dewdrops by the burning light;
Or like birds or blossoms, takest thou thy flight--
Sunbeam of delight.
