Jessie B. Rittenhouse, ed. (1869–1948).  The Second Book of Modern Verse.  1922.
 
Interlude
 
Scudder Middleton
 
 
I AM 1 not old, but old enough
To know that you are very young.
It might be said I am the leaf,
And you the blossom newly sprung.
 
So I shall grow a while with you,        5
And hear the bee and watch the cloud,
Before the dragon on the branch,
The caterpillar, weaves a shroud.
