Walter Murdoch (1874–1970).  The Oxford Book of Australasian Verse.  1918.
 
154. Winged Words
 
By Robert Crawford
 
 
THE WINGÈD words, they pass
  Still everywhere,
Seeds of the spirit-grass
  The dream-winds bear
From that heart-field to this,        5
Where thought as feeling is;
There’s not a seed will miss
  Life, once sown there.
 
They pass, the faery words,
  In shade and shine,        10
As they were magic birds
  This heart of mine
Gave shape and colour to,
As in the light and dew
The primal creatures grew        15
  From germs divine.
