Me – June 4th

Me by Walter de la Mare

As long as I live
I shall always be
My Self – and no other,
Just me.

Like a tree.

Like a willow or elder,
An aspen, a thorn,
Or a cypress forlorn.

Like a flower,
For its hour
A primrose, a pink,
Or a violet-
Sunned by the sun,
And with dewdrops wet.

Always just me.
