The Wanderers
By Padraic Colum
A MIGHTY star has drawn a-nigh, and now
Is vibrant in the air;
The trembling, half-divested trees of his
Bright presence are aware.
And Night has told it to the hills, and told        5
The partridge in the nest;
And left it on the long white roads that she
Gives light instead of rest.
I watch it in the stream, the stranger-star,
Pulsing from marge to main:        10
What mould will be my flesh and bone before
That star is there again!
