elldee Arg! I hate dandelions! I seem to spend most of my weekends getting rid of them from my garden!

revenant Now that's what I call green (sorry for the turquoise remark before).
These are beautiful.
The whole poem is 72 lines long. Your quote comes after line 48. It continues as follows:

Here at the fountain's sliding foot,
Or at some fruit tree's mossy root,
Casting the body's vest aside,
My soul into the boughs does glide;
There like a bird it sits and sings,
Then whets, and combs its silver wings;
And, till prepar'd for longer flight,
Waves in its plumes the various light.

The poem can be read in full here.

SoulCurry Hey, Revenant! What's the apology for? The newbies learn at the feet of masters. (Said with a smile and genuine humility). Thanks for the link, what a wonderful poem it is.
