The Dragon-Fly - Edna St. Vincent Millay


The Dragon-Fly - Edna St. Vincent Millay

I wound myself in a white cocoon of singing, 
All day long in the brook's uneven bed, 
Measuring out my soul in a mucous thread; 
Dimly now to the brook's green bottom clinging, 
Men behold me, a worm spun-out and dead, 
Walled in an iron house of silky singing. 
Nevertheless at length, O reedy shallows, 
Not as a plodding nose to the slimy stem, 
But as a brazen wing with a spangled hem, 
Over the jewel-weed and the pink marshmallows, 
Free of these and making a song of them, 
I shall arise, and a song of the reedy shallows!
