1200. Thistle-Down
 
By Clara Doty Bates
 
 
NEVER a beak has my white bird,
    Nor throat for song;
But wings of silk by soft wind stirred
    Bear it along.
 
With wings of silk and a heart of seed,        5
    Over field and town
It sails,—ah! quaint little bird indeed
    Is the thistle-down.
