Has anybody spied the sky?
I seem to have misplaced it;
I hear it's blue, but what to do–
Some dark thing has effaced it.
Has anybody seen the wind?
I heard someone defaced it;
Despite all pleas he marred the breeze
And spoiled the clouds that laced it.
Has anybody sipped the sea?
I miss the waves that graced it;
It fills my dreams and there it seems
My mind can almost taste it.
Has anybody heard my heart?
Some bitterness encased it,
And left its room a quiet tomb
As if someone erased it.
