Scudder Middleton: Interlude

Updated September 23, 2019 | Infoplease Staff


Scudder Middleton

I am not old, but old enough
To know that you are very young.
It might be said I am the leaf,
And you the blossom newly sprung.
So I shall grow a while with you,
And hear the bee and watch the cloud,
Before the dragon on the branch,
The caterpillar, weaves a shroud.
