A Dream Pang

© Colleen Hilman
I had withdrawn in forest, and my song

© Colleen Hilman
Was swallowed up in leaves that blew alway;

© Colleen Hilman
And to the forest edge you came one day

© Colleen Hilman
(This was my dream) and looked and pondered long,

© Colleen Hilman
But did not enter, though the wish was strong:

© Colleen Hilman
You shook your pensive head as who should say,

© Colleen Hilman
“I dare not - too far in his footsteps stray -

© Colleen Hilman
He must seek me would he undo the wrong.”

© Colleen Hilman
Not far, but near, I stood and saw it all,

© Colleen Hilman
Behind low boughs the trees let down outside;

© Colleen Hilman
And the sweet pang it cost me not to call

© Colleen Hilman
And tell you that I saw does still abide.

© Colleen Hilman
But 'tis not true that thus I dwelt aloof,

© Colleen Hilman
For the wood wakes, and you are here for proof.


Robert Frost - 1913

I love --LOVE!!-- photos of mushrooms. Taking them, looking at them... whatever. Beautiful.

(Mushrooms also used to be my favourite thing to draw, back when I did that sort of thing.)
