“I Wondered and Wondered”
By Hilda Conkling
From “Song Nets”

I WONDERED and wondered …
I saw a comrade of mine;
It was a wave smooth and blue
That tossed … fell away.
I wondered and wondered …        5
I saw a mountain white with old age:
I could not remember
How I came there.
I wondered and wondered …
Under a motherly sky        10
That knew my name and kind,
That rested my tired thoughts,
That said, “I have a rainbow for you, Hilda,
And a young moon, hidden.”
