    A Baby Running Barefoot

    When the bare feet of the baby beat across the grass
    The little white feet nod like white flowers in the wind,
    They poise and run like ripples lapping across the water;
    And the sight of their white play among the grass
    Is like a little robin's song, winsome,
    Or as two white butterflies settle in the cup of one flower
    For a moment, then away with a flutter of wings.

    I long for the baby to wander hither to me
    Like a wind-shadow wandering over the water,
    So that she can stand on my knee
    With her little bare feet in my hands,
    Cool like syringa buds,
    Firm and silken like pink young peony flowers.
