XIV. Some Things That Fly There Be

XIV.

Some things that fly there be,—
Birds, hours, the bumble-bee:
Bats, flies, gnats, paper aeroplanes, fleas.

Some things that stay there be,—
Grief, hills, eternity:
Rocks, pennies on the ground, corpses and houses, usually.

There are, that resting, rise.
The sky:
I mean the clouds. Meant to say the clouds.
