Poetry of Kansas

Wings

I dreamed, and dreamed;
Of wings I dreamed; of wings.
I dreamed of wings;
Soft-feathered things,___wings.
I dreamed of wings, up-lifting things,
To pull me up to where my soul
Could wander free;
Above the winds, on wings;
Wings to set me free,___
To lift me into unremembering,
To waft me from the days of things
Into the world of wings.
I dreamed of what I must possess___
And cannot have.
I dreamed of wings.
