Cross-Currents
 
Winifred Virginia Jackson
 
 
THEY wrapped my soul in eiderdown;
    They placed me warm and snug
In carvèd chair; set me with care
    Upon an old prayer rug.
 
They cased my feet in golden shoes        5
    That hurt at toe and heel;
My restless feet, with youth all fleet,
    Nor asked how they might feel.
 
And now they wonder where I am,
    And search with shrill, cold cry;        10
But I crouch low where tall reeds grow,
    And smile as they pass by!
