1532. A Mood
 
By Winifred Howells
 
 
THE WIND exultant swept
Through the new leaves overhead,
Till at once my pulses leapt
With a life I thought long dead,
And I woke, as one who has slept,        5
To my childhood,—that had not fled,
On the wind my spirit flew;
Its freedom was mine as well.
For a moment the world was new;
What came there to break the spell?        10
The wind still freshly blew;
My spirit it was that fell.
