So Little You Are
By William H. Simpson
 
From “Along Old Trails”

I
O EARTH!
So little you are
In the whirl of all worlds,
Through the long cold
And the long night.        5
 
I marvel
That the tips of the sun-flames
Find you
Across wide ways of the dark.
 
Or is it        10
That life
May come from its hiding?
 
II
O loved one,
So little you are
In the swirl of all souls,        15
Through the long days,
Through the long years!
 
I wonder
That the flames of my longing
Find you        20
Across wide ways of desire.
 
Or is it
That life
May come from its hiding?
