Poems from the Rossetti MS.: Earlier Poems
I fear’d the fury of my wind
I FEAR’D 1 the fury of my wind
Would blight all blossoms fair and true;
And my sun it shin’d and shin’d,
And my wind it never blew.
But a blossom fair or true        5
Was not found on any tree;
For all blossoms grew and grew
Fruitless, false, tho’ fair to see.
