I Am the Wind
By Zoë Akins
I AM the wind that wavers,
  You are the certain land;
I am the shadow that passes
  Over the sand.
I am the leaf that quivers,        5
  You—the unshaken tree;
You are the stars that are steadfast,
  I am the sea.
You are the light eternal,
  Like a torch I shall die….        10
You are the surge of deep music.
  I—but a cry!
