  • Wind of the sunny south! oh, still delay
    In the gay woods and in the golden air,
    Like to a good old age released from care,
    Journeying, in long serenity, away.
    In such a bright, late quiet, would that I
    Might wear out life like thee, mid bowers and brooks,
    And, dearer yet, the sunshine of kind looks,
    And music of kind voices ever nigh;
    And when my last sand twinkled in the glass,
    Pass silently from men as thou dost pass.
  • And the South Wind—he was dressed
    With a ribbon round his breast
    That floated, flapped, and fluttered
    In a riotous unrest
    And a drapery of mist
    From the shoulder to the wrist
    Floating backward with the motion
    Of the waving hand he kissed.
