1I gave my thoughts a golden peach,
2A silver citron tree;
3They clustered dumbly out of reach
4And would not sing for me.
5I built my thoughts a roof of rush,
6A little byre beside;
7They left my music to the thrush
8And flew at eveningtide.
9I went my way and would not care
10If they should come and go;
11A thousand birds seemed up in air,
12My thoughts were singing so.
