In Their Image
By Muriel Stuart
I AM one of the wind’s stories,
I am a fancy of the rain,
A memory of the high moon’s glories,
The hint the sunset had of pain.
They dreamed me as they dreamed all other—        5
Hawthorn and I, I and the grass;
With sister shade and phantom brother
Across their sleep I glide and pass.
Twilight is in my blood; my being
Mingles with trees and ferns and stones;        10
Thunder and stars my lips are freeing,
And there is sea-rack in my bones.
Those that have dreamed me shall out-wake me,
But I go hence with flowers and weeds;
I am no more to those who make me        15
Than other drifting fruit and seeds.
And though I love them, mourn to leave them—
Sea, earth and sunset, stars and streams—
My tears, my passing do not grieve them …
Other dreams have they, other dreams.        20
