Debtors All

Salvoes in Faith

Bankrupt

One midnight, deep in starlight still, I dreamed that I received this bill: (_________ in account with Life): Five thousand breathless dawns all new; Five thousand flowers fresh in dew; Five thousand sunsets wrapped in gold; One million snow-flakes served ice-cold; Five quiet friends, one baby’s love; One white-mad sea with clouds above; One hundred music haunted dreams Of moon-drenched roads and hurrying streams; Of prophesying winds and trees; Of silent stars and browsing bees; One June night in a fragrant wood; One heart that loved and understood. I wondered when I waked at day, How-in God’s name-I could pay!
