On the Wing
By Dorothy Keeley
A WIND that blows from the sea, and smells
  Of spring and fall together,
Runs racing up the yellow fields
  Into the autumn weather.
And I run too, for I am young        5
  And breathless with all living—
The trees are shouting as we pass,
  The asters singing in the grass.
In half an hundred years from now,
  When all my songs are sung,        10
I’ll not be old and crossly sage,
I’ll love the bright hill of my age
  Under its winter sun,
And wave the gayest hand I know
  To everything that’s young.        15
