Zoe Akins

(1866-1958 / United States)

I Am The Wind

I am the wind that wavers,
You are the certain land;
I am the shadow that passes
Over the sand.

I am the leaf that quivers,
You, the unshaken tree;
You are the stars that are steadfast,
I am the sea.

You are the light eternal-
Like a torch I shall die.
You are the surge of deep music,
I but a cry!
