To a Grey Dress
By Arthur Symons
 
THERE’S a flutter of grey through the trees:
  Ah, the exquisite curves of her dress as she passes
  Fleet with her feet on the path where the grass is!
 
I see not her face, I but see
  The swift re-appearance, the flitting persistence—        5
  There!—of that flutter of grey in the distance.
 
It has flickered and fluttered away:
  What a teasing regret she has left in my day-dream,
  And what dreams of delight are the dreams that one may dream!
 
It was only a flutter of grey;        10
  But the vaguest of raiment’s impossible chances
  Has set my heart beating the way of old dances.
