A FAUN'S SONG


 

COOL! cool! cool!
Cool and sweet
The feel of the moss at my feet!
And sweet and cool
The touch of the wind, of the wind!
5

Cool wind out of the blue,
At the touch of you
A little wave crinkles and flows
All over me down to my toes.

"Coo-loo! Coo-loo!"

10
Hear the doves in the tree-tops croon.
"Coo-loo! Coo-loo!"
Love comes soon.

"June! June!"
The veery sings,

15
Sings and sings,
"June! June!"—
A pretty tune!

Wind with your weight of perfume,
Bring me the bluebells’ bloom!
