You and I
By Edna Wahlert McCourt
From “Voices”

A Wife speaks:
    WE were wild birds soaring
        To reach the sky!
    The gray wind lifted you like a feather—
        I ceased to fly.
    We were fast streams flowing        5
        To find the sea!
    The brown earth carved for you a channel,
        But none for me.
    We were young plants growing
        To brave the cold!        10
    The gold sun kissed you all the winter—
        I am old.
