I was dreaming I had been forsaken by all my beloved and sat by a stream in the woods in misery, when a bluebird fluttered up strangely tame & sat on my knee –
Here many more seasons will pass without my being there to see the rain dash pollen from maple bloom.
Charles E. Burchfield, March 27, 1917
