Poetry Friday: Interlude by Scudder Middleton

July 10th, 2009 (12:13 am)
thirsty

Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: TCM score music

I am not old, but old enough
To know that you are very young.
It might be said I am the leaf,
And you the blossom newly sprung.

So I shall grow a while with you,
And hear the bee and watch the cloud,
Before the dragon on the branch,
The caterpillar, weaves a shroud.
