The Great War

from War: an Ode And Other Poems, an electronic edition

Ski Song

FLEET! Fleet!

Sweet! Sweet!

Fleet! Fleet!

Fair! Fair!

Sweet and fleet, have you wings or feet?

Are you made of earth, are you made of air?

Across the snow

I watch you go,

Like a flying bird, like a falling star;

Prithee say,

Ab you dart away,

Whether a body or soul you are.
