The Immobile Wind
By Yvor Winters
BLUE waves within the stone
Turn like deft wrists interweaving.
Emotion, undulant, alone.
Curled wings flow beyond perceiving.
Swift points of sight,        5
    mystic and amorous little hands,
The wind has drunk
    as water swallows sifting sands.
The wings of a butterfly
Feel of the wind        10
Tentatively; as men die
In thought, that have not sinned.
