Poems by Women


Karle Wilson Baker

Some days my thoughts are just cocoons -- all cold, and dull, and blind,
They hang from dripping branches in the grey woods of my mind;

And other days they drift and shine -- such free and flying things!
I find the gold-dust in my hair, left by their brushing wings.


From: Rittenhouse, Jessie B.
The Second Book of Modern Verse (1919).
