    As It Is

    If you and I
    Had wings to fly -
    Great wings like seagulls' wings -
    How would we soar
    Above the roar
    Of loud unneeded things!

    We two would rise
    Through changing skies
    To blue unclouded space,
    And undismayed
    And unafraid
    Meet the sun face to face.

    But wings we know not;
    The feathers grow not
    To carry us so high;
    And low in the gloom
    Of a little room
    We weep and say good-bye.
