Sandals

I've a pair of sandals,
    I've a pair of misty green,
And another pair of sandals
    Only you have seen.
 
In the shining silver sandals
    I have sped to skies afar.
I have danced and gathered starbeams
    On the highest swinging star.
 
In the misty gray-green sandals
    On I have slipped through woodlands dim;
I have knelt a hidden altars--
    There to breathe a low-toned hymn.
 
But the pair of scarlet sandals
    Those I wore but one brief day;
And since you have left me--weeping
    I have hidden them away.

__Jean Rathburn Haines.
