The Wayfarers
By Anita Fitch
 
EARTH, I dare not cling to thee
Lest I should lose my precious soul.
 
’Tis not more wondrous than the fluff
Within the milkweed’s autumn boll.
 
Earth, shall my sacred essences        5
But sink into thy senseless dust?
 
The springtide takes its way with them
And blossoms blow as blossoms must.
 
Earth, I swear with solemn vow,
I feel a greatness in my breath!        10
 
The grass-seed hath its dream of God,
Its visioning of life and death.
